Cops: Balcony Rifle Shooting Was Random Attack

San Diego police said a suspect was arrested for shooting a man in the head earlier this month in what was apparently a random attack.

Police arrested DeAndre Eugene Daniels, 18, last week in east Los Angeles.

According to investigators, Daniels, who has no permanent residence, walked toward a building in the 12000 block of Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard and shot the victim below the left ear. Investigators said the victim was having trouble getting a signal on his laptop air card and had gone out to his balcony in an effort to improve the signal.

The victim is still hospitalized, police said.

Daniels faces multiple charges, including attempted murder and assault with a firearm.
