Statesman staffJune 11, 2013 

A 21-year-old Caldwell man was sentenced to up to 12 years in prison for his role in a shooting that injured two people last fall at a Nampa trailer park, Canyon County Prosecutor Bryan Taylor announced Friday.

Cristobal Maceda, sentenced to serve at least 2 1/2 years by Judge Juneal C. Kerrick for an attack that happened Oct. 21 at the Evergreen Trailer Park.

Here's what happened, according to authorities and prosecutors:

Maceda and co-defendant Juan Rodriguez were driving near the trailer park when an altercation ensued with the passengers of another vehicle. The altercation continued after both vehicles pulled into the park.

There was an argument, and Maceda and Rodriguez threatened the victims with weapons.

Both victims were injured when Maceda got back in the vehicle and fired multiple shots.

“To open fire in the middle of a trailer park, especially with families in the area, shows that the defendant has no regard for the law or for the safety and well-being of others,” Taylor said. “Mr. Maceda belongs behind bars where he can’t harm or terrify innocent people.”

Maceda also will be required submit a DNA sample to the Idaho database and was ordered to have no contact with the two victims in the case for a period of 10 years.

Rodriguez was sentenced earlier this month by Judge Molly J. Huskey to six years, with three years fixed, for his role in the attack.
