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.
