SAN DIEGO — An on-duty San Diego patrol officer witnessed a drive-by shooting Friday morning in Mountain View, allowing officers to quickly arrest the three teen suspects, police said.

It happened around 10:45 a.m., when the Southeastern Division patrol officer saw a teen lean out of a moving car and fire five or six shots at a group of people in a strip mall on Logan Avenue near Euclid Avenue, police Lt. Shawn Takeuchi said in a news release.

Nobody from the targeted group was struck by the gunfire, but several rounds hit an occupied vehicle, according to Takeuchi. The two women inside the car were not injured.

The patrol officer briefly lost sight of the shooter’s vehicle, but found it abandoned in the center of the street about a block away, Takeuchi said. Officers flooded the area, and with the help of police dogs and a helicopter, they found and arrested the three teens hiding in a nearby backyard.

The only adult among the trio, an 18-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and related gun charges, according to Takeuchi. The juveniles, ages 16 and 17, were arrested on similar charges.

Investigators found two guns inside the abandoned vehicle, Takeuchi said, describing one as a gun that was previously reported stolen, and the other as an untraceable “ghost gun.”
