U.S. Army Soldier Shot, Paralyzed at Own Welcome Home Party


Police have identified the man wanted in the shooting of an Army soldier who was paralyzed after he was shot Friday night during his own welcome home party.

Christopher Sullivan, 22, of San Bernardino was home for the holidays and attending the party in the 2800 block of N. Garner Avenue. Just before 11 p.m., another partygoer, identified as Ruben Ray Jurado, got into an argument with Sullivan over football, according to a news release issued Sunday by San Bernardino police.
The argument escalated and Jurado allegedly pulled out a gun and started shooting. Sullivan was hit by gunfire, police said.
Jurado, 19, fled the scene. He is considered armed and dangerous.
Paramedics rushed Sullivan to a nearby hospital. He is now paralyzed, said Sgt. Gary Robertson.
“We’re not sure if he’s going to be paraplegic or quadraplegic,” Robertson said.
