The case began Saturday night, around 11 p.m., with a report of a man allegedly firing an assault-type weapon in the backyard of his home.

Witnesses alleged he was upset over a loud party next door.

Officers got a search warrant and the San Mateo South County Regional Special Weapons and Tactics team went into the home around 8:57 a.m. Sunday and searched for the suspect, police said.
