Two bullets struck the side of the truck and a third shattered the rear window. Neither of the occupants inside the Ram were injured during the shooting.

The suspect vehicle is described as an older model Chevy Astro van with a very faded green paint job. All three of the suspects are described as Hispanic and believed to be gang members. The suspect vehicle was last seen heading westbound towards 395.

According to one of the victim’s, the reason for the shooting was all over the victims honking at the suspects. “He was gonna sideswipe us because he was trying to turn into Arco gas station”.
