Two Suspects Arrested After Christmas Eve Shooting Investigation


On December 24, 2022 patrol officers were dispatched to a shooting that occurred in the area of Havenwood Ct. and Brentwood Blvd. in Brentwood.

The following is from the Brentwood Police Dept.:

A combination of two different calibers of casings were initially located by responding officers leading us to believe there were two shooters. Several uninvolved vehicles and residences were hit with stray bullets as a result of the shooting. Thankfully no one was injured.


Our Detectives were assigned follow-up to the case and identified both suspects, 31year-old Morgan Scales and 37 year-old Herbert Williams (both of Pittsburg). We are pleased to announce on January 30, our Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team took both men safely into custody after the execution of Search Warrants at each of their residences.

A total of four firearms were seized, including a semi-automatic rifle and three semi-automatic pistols (two of which that are commonly referred to as “ghost guns” and one that was not registered to either shooter). Both Scales and Williams are prohibited from possessing any firearms due to their criminal history. Our Detectives now believe they are in possession of both firearms used in the shooting on Christmas Eve.

A total of four subjects, including both shooting suspects, were arrested and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.

Geez! How can anybody even afford to fill those high capacity magazines? If any of these guys could learn to aim & shoot straight they wouldn’t need to spray 100 rounds into the wind. Aim & squeeze off a shot e-z p-z.

They’re just emulating what they see in those family friendly movies like Bad Boys, Bad Boys Forever, and Scarface.
They probably also hold their pistols sideways for added dramatic effect.
I see CA’s restrictive gun laws are working out great.

“Ghost guns” that’s funny. Does that mean 2nd amendment gun?
Shall not be infringed is like pretty basic grammar. Anyone pretending it doesn’t mean SHALL NOT is a commie. We all know what it really means.

I would like to ask our grease-ball Governor how this can possibly happen in our wonderful state.
“Both Scales and Williams are prohibited from possessing any firearms due to their criminal history.”
I hear that Ca has the most wonderful gun laws as a state, is this true?
How can these criminals continue to get busted possessing these weapons?
Oh, that’s right, Newscum emptied the jails. Go figure!

Agree, with all of his, probably what he calls, the most restrictive laws in place to prevent gun violence in the world. How does this still happen? ’cause he don’t know SH.. Get these people in jail to prevent gun violence!

Hay Governor Grease ball! Those are all Ca illegal weapons! Laws work fantastic I see. 1 AR pistol (obviously detachable 30rnd mag) , 2 ghost (Or ggggggg-ghost) Glocks, one “legal” serial # pistol “likely stolen”, 1 drum for glock “must weigh 15lbs loaded”, a 30 stick, a 40 stick and the only one that looks like it is legal is “I am assuming” the one for the numbered gun. Put that together with the fact the felony’s preventing ownership and you go right ahead and pass more laws damaging lawful gun ownership…. we will be sure to obey. great job jackass.
