Berkeley police detectives arrested a Fremont man this week in connection with a nearly two-month shooting investigation, records show.
Police arrested 27-year-old Rashad Christopher in Fremont at noon on Thursday, according to booking records.
Limited information was available about this week's arrest but, according to records online, police had linked Christopher to a non-injury shooting in northwest Berkeley on Nov. 8.
That day, Berkeley police said previously, officers investigated gunfire between the occupants of two vehicles at Curtis Street and Hearst Avenue at 2:20 p.m.
Both vehicles fled the scene. Police found casings but no victims or property damage.
This week, police arrested Christopher on suspicion of assault with a firearm on a person, conspiracy and shooting at an inhabited vehicle or dwelling.
He remained in custody as of publication time and was being held on $420,000 bail, according to booking records.
Christopher is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday at Wiley Manuel Courthouse in Oakland.
