An 81-year-old Half Moon Bay man on parole for murder didn’t respond well to running into a woman who had spurned his marriage proposal a year earlier, authorities said Tuesday.

Clyde Wilson Streets, 81, was arrested March 1 on Bloom Lane after he asked a friend where he could find a gun. Investigators fear he was scheming to shoot the woman, said Lt. Larry Schumaker, spokesman for the San Mateo County sheriff.

Streets proposed to the woman about a year ago, Schumaker said. She said no.

When Streets ran into her again, he became agitated, asked a mutual friend where he might be able to find a gun and implied he might shoot the woman, Schumaker said. The friend went to police.

Streets was convicted of murder in Plumas County, though Schumaker didn’t know when. As a paroled felon, Streets cannot carry a firearm, and his alleged inquiry was enough to get him arrested on suspicion of violating parole, Schumaker said. He is still in custody.
