Morelos broke through a kitchen window at a home in the 800 block of Main Street on Nov. 1 armed with a handgun. Once inside, he went to a bedroom and fired several shots, one of them hitting a man in the right calf. Morelos then pistol-whipped the gunshot victim in the back of the head.

After the victim and another man ran from the house, Morelos punched and kicked a woman, who is the mother of their young son, in the face before fleeing. He turned himself in to police 12 days later.
