Diaz allegedly forced his way into a home on the 200 block of South J Street and punched a 21-year-old man he found in the home several times in the face. The man attempted to put up a fight, but then left the home and got into a vehicle. The arrest report indicates that Diaz then fired two shots from a 9mm handgun he grabbed from the woman.
