Officers responded to the 600 block of West Ward Avenue last Friday after a suspect in a brown SUV reportedly fired shots at a small gold sedan. The occupants in both vehicles fled after the shots were fired according to the Ridgecrest Police Department release.

The investigation led officers to the 500 block of West Howell Street where they located the sedan. Officers surrounded the home and summoned the occupants out of the residence, then determined those occupants to be unarmed.

Police have since arrested one suspect, Jose Cabuto, 29, and are seeking a second. Cabuto is charged with attempted murder, negligent discharge of a firearm and assault with a deadly weapon.

Anyone with more information is urged to call the RPD at 760-499-5100.
