City's first homicide of 1997 tied to loud music

An East Palo Alto man was shot and killed early Sunday morning, apparently because he was playing a radio too loudly.

The incident began when Jaime Tajimaroa Huante, 25, of 2187 Clarke Ave., came home about 1 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, and was playing his car stereo loudly, said Sgt. Don O'Keefe of the East Palo Alto Regional Investigative Bureau.

A man staying at the Clarke Street house, Guillermo Baltazar Bernal, 19, complained to Huante about his radio, and the two men started arguing, O'Keefe said.

At that point, witnesses saw Bernal fire a semiautomatic handgun into the ground in front of Huante, who was standing in the kitchen doorway. Witnesses told police that Bernal then shot Huante in his arm, and Huante fell down on the kitchen floor. "Bernal then came into the residence and fired two more shots into Huante's body as he lay semi-conscious on the floor," O'Keefe said.

After the shooting, Bernal ran off and Huante was taken to Stanford Hospital, where he later died.
