A 26-year-old man was charged Monday with a road-rage shooting in San Juan Capistrano.

Just after midnight May 14, a motorist crashed into a parked car, igniting an argument between the driver and Jaime Moralsesgonzalez, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Scott Steinle.

As the driver was attempting to leave, a brick was hurled at the car, shattering the front windshield and then Moralsesgonzalez allegedly opened fire, Steinle said.

No one was injured in the conflict, Steinle said.

Moralesgonzalez was charged with attempted murder, discharge of a firearm at a car, assault with a firearm and assault with a deadly weapon, all felonies.

Moralesgonzalez also faces sentencing enhancements for attempted premeditated murder, discharge of a firearm and personal use of a firearm.

Moralesgonzalez did not enter a plea at his arraignment Monday and was ordered to return to court June 2 to be arraigned.
