Fourth arrest in Half Moon Bay shooting

fourth suspect in a recent Half Moon Bay shooting was arrested Thursday night along with his father who sheriff’s deputies say tried to stop them from taking his son into custody.
Mason Paul Wessel, 19, of Half Moon Bay was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility on suspicion of attempted murder and the allegation he was acting on behalf of a criminal street gang.
His father, David Paul Wessel, 54, also of Half Moon Bay, was arrested for obstructing a peace officer but later cited and released at the scene.
Sheriff’s detectives apprehended the young Wessel at 6:50 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 1 after spotting him leaving a car on the 200 block of Hyde street where his father has an apartment.
The older Wessel was actually driving the vehicle carrying his son and allegedly tried to block the detectives from arresting the teen.
Wessel’s arrest comes on the heels of three others suspected in the Aug. 14 shooting that authorities believe to be gang related.
On that day, deputies responding to reports of five or six gunshots found Half Moon Bay resident Jose Monroy, 29, bleeding from a gunshot wound to his foot on the 200 block of Grove Street.
A few days later, another gunshot victim showed up at Seton Medical Center.
On Thursday morning, deputies with the Sheriff’s Office conducted a search warrant on the 400 block of Metzgar Street in Half Moon Bay and arrested Christian Serrano DeLeon, 21, who is believed to be the primary suspect in the case.
Marco Antonio Barajas, 18, was located at a residence on the 400 Block of Willow Street in Half Moon Bay and a 17-year-old Hispanic boy out of Moss Beach was also taken into custody on the 100 block of Corona Street.
All three were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and belonging to a criminal street gang. The juvenile, who is not being named, is housed at the Youth Services Center.
Investigators believe the shooting was gang-related and may have stemmed from a dispute between the Norteño and Sureño street gangs.
Prosecutors should receive the case on Tuesday morning and if they decide to charge the suspects they will be arraigned that afternoon. A decision will also be made whether to charge the juvenile as an adult, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti.
