CASE: Salvador (Alfonso) Bradford (Case #16FE019266)

Prosecutor: Deputy District Attorney Danny Lee, Major Crimes Unit

Salvador Bradford was convicted by a jury of attempted murder and felon in possession of a firearm. The jury also found true allegations that Bradford personally and intentionally discharged a firearm causing great bodily injuries.

On October 3, 2016, Bradford and the victim were at a mutual friend’s apartment.  At some point, Bradford left the residence to retrieve a handgun. He returned a short time later and fired at the victim at least three times before fleeing the apartment. The victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds and fractures to his lower and upper body. On October 4, 2016, Bradford then shot his girlfriend while they were in a car in Richmond, CA.  A spent casing at the Richmond scene was compared to the spent casings in the Sacramento shooting and was determined to have been fired from a single firearm.  In 2019, Bradford was convicted of attempted murder with related allegations for the Richmond shooting and sentenced to 24 years in state prison.  He was serving time on that sentence when he was tried for the Sacramento shooting.

Bradford faces a maximum sentence of 51 years and 4 months to life in prison.  Sentencing is set for May 6, 2024, at 3:00 p.m. in Department 40 before the Honorable Steve White.
