OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An Oakland man indicted for allegedly firing a bullet that paralyzed a 10-year-old piano student has been indicted again, this time for allegedly carjacking California's state senate leader days earlier.
An Alameda County grand jury indictment issued late last month
accuses 25-year-old Jared Adams of stealing State Senate President
Pro Tem Don Perata's red Dodge Charger at gunpoint in December.
Adams' girlfriend Maeve Clifford is charged with receiving a stolen car, auto theft and being an accessory. A third suspect, Ryan McGough, is also facing carjacking-related charges.
Adams already faces charges of attempted murder, robbery and
other crimes in the shooting of Christopher Rodriguez.
Authorities say Adams fired at a gas station attendant during a robbery, and a stray bullet pierced a wall, striking Rodriguez as he was taking a piano lesson.
