CALEXICO — Three men were in custody this morning on suspicion of attempted murder stemming from a drive-by shooting here Thursday.
No one was injured in the shooting.
Calexico police responded to a report of several shots fired at an occupied residence in the 1100 block of Milpitas Street shortly after 7 p.m., said Calexico police Sgt. Armando Marquez.
Using a description given by witnesses, officers found the large sedan thought to have been used in the shooting being driven in the area of the incident, Marquez said.
The driver failed to yield when officers attempted to stop the car, leading to a pursuit across town, Marquez said.
The sedan stopped after hitting a tree at the 700 block of Matallana Street on the west side of town, Marquez said. Officers detained the sedan's driver, Genaro Lemus Jr., 21, of Calexico, and two passengers, Juan German Lemus, 25, of Calexico and Ramon Castro, 20, of El Centro, Marquez said.
