SAN RAMON, Calif. (KRON) — Charges have been filed against a man arrested for shooting his ex-girlfriend in a San Ramon apartment last week, according to a news release from the San Ramon Police Department. Forest T. McCaskill, a 26-year-old Concord resident, was arrested in Anaheim on Monday after allegedly shooting his ex-girlfriend on Saturday Feb. 18.
