BRAWLEY — Two Brawley residents thought by police to be gang-affiliated were injured in a drive-by shooting Monday night.
Brawley police Lt. John Myers said Alfredo Holguin, 18, Nicholas Rodriguez, 31, and Fabian Cardiel, 20, all of Brawley, were the victims of what investigators think was a gang-related drive-by shooting. Only two were reported injured.
The shooting happened about 8:44 p.m. Monday in the alley behind Brownie's Dinner in the 900 block of Main Street.
The three men were walking in the south alley when they were approached from behind by a vehicle. Someone from the vehicle started shooting, hitting two of the men.
Rodriguez was grazed on his left arm by a bullet while Holguin was shot twice in the abdominal area. Cardiel was not hit.
