Hollister Police are asking for any information pertaining to a man who allegedly shot a Hollister resident in his home two weeks ago.

Heriberto “Eddie” Bedolla, 27, entered Anthony Davis’ home on Chaparral Court on Dec. 15 with another man, Daniel Lopez, and shot him, said Hollister Police Detective Tony Lamonica.

Bedolla shot at Davis six times, hitting him twice in the chest, and then fled with Lopez on foot.

Police apprehended Lopez, who was positively identified in a photo lineup, and have him in custody at the San Benito County Jail. They are still looking for Bedolla, who is considered armed and dangerous, Lamonica said.

Bedolla is a known member of the Norteno gang, and the shooting is most likely gang related, he said.

“He supposedly lives in town, and we want any information anyone can provide us with,” Lamonica said.

Bedolla has been positively identified by a witness as the shooter in a photo lineup, and may be driving an early 1980s model blue Chevrolet Caprice.

Bedolla had been attempting to kill Davis for the past three or four months because of a gang-related incident, Lamonica said.

“Supposedly there was a hit out for Davis’ life,” he said. “(Davis) is an ex-Fresno Bulldog and he was trying to get into the Norteno gang, and basically Bedolla told him if you want to come into our gang you have to kill somebody.”

When Davis failed to kill anyone, someone in the Norteno hierarchy told Bedolla to kill him, Lamonica said.

“(Bedolla’s) not the main guy in Hollister,” he said, “so that’s what we’re trying to find out now.”

Davis is currently in stable condition, with the two bullets that struck him still inside his body. Because of the placing of the bullets the doctor determined it would be too dangerous to remove them, Lamonica said.

One of them is in his liver and the other is in his chest area, he said.

Police are holding him out of town in a safe place, Lamonica said.

The police are uncertain what type of handgun was used in the shooting, but have possession of several of the rounds that were lodged in the wall of Davis’ residence.

Bedolla also uses the alias Jesus Lopez.

Anyone with information about Bedolla’s whereabouts are asked to contact Detective Tony Lamonica at (831) 638-4115 at the Hollister Police Department.
