Holiday man accused of firing bullets into home of ex

HOLIDAY — Early in the morning on Dec. 2, the victim heard a loud noise come from her garage. She went to investigate.

Through the garage's freshly broken window, she saw her ex-boyfriend's face, then a gun.

Jose Luis Soto-Candelario, 49, fired two shots toward the woman while she ran back into the house, a Pasco sheriff's report states. He walked around the home and shot through two other windows into a back bedroom. No one was hurt.

The victim went to her front door and watched Soto-Candelario, whom she dated and once lived with, carrying a handgun while he walked back to his Honda Civic, the report states. Then he drove off.

Deputies responded to the house in the 4000 block of Aegean Avenue and recovered bullets from inside the home. Soto-Candelario was arrested Friday at the west Pasco courthouse.

Soto-Candelario, of 4928 Phoenix Ave., was charged with of domestic aggravated assault and armed burglary. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Monday with bail set at $200,000.
