LUCERNE VALLEY, Calif. – An Apple Valley and Victorville man were arrested for shooting at an occupied vehicle on Sunday, officials said.
At around 1:57 a.m., deputies from the Victor Valley Station responded to a 911 call reporting a shootin in the area of State Highway 18 and Midway in Lucerne Valley. The victims, a 26-year-old Newberry Springs man and a 68-year-old Lucerne Valley woman, said that they were at a gas station at Navajo and Bear Valley Roads in the Town of Apple Valley when they noticed a man with no shirt and a bloody nose running from the location with several other subjects. They thought that the people were involved in a physical altercation and left the gas station.
As they drove away, they noticed a newer Dodge Charger following them. They stopped at the post office and saw the same vehicle near the curb. They drove away from the post office east on State Highway 18 toward Midway and the vehicle sped up to drive next to the victims. The passenger drove up next to the victims “The passenger rolled down the window and pointed a gun at the victims, firing three rounds,” Victor Valley Sheriff’s official said. “The rounds struck the driver’s side door. The suspects then fled the scene. The victims were not injured.”
The victims provided a description of the vehicle leading to the deputies locating the vehicle. A felony traffic stop was conducted. David Campos, 23, of Victorville, and Sergio Rodriguez, 18, of Apple Valley, were arrested. A handgun and ammunition were located inside the vehicle.
