Second suspect who fired shots in Valley Center, sought

Posted: Updated:

VALLEY CENTER (CNS) - Sheriff's deputies Sunday sought a man who eluded law enforcement officers after a shooting near the Rincon Indian Reservation.

Joshua David Nelson, 21, of Valley Center, was arrested at the end of chase in which the car he was in crashed into a ditch on a farm road shortly after 1 p.m. Saturday, authorities said.

The other suspect, whose name was withheld, was expected to be arrested soon. Sheriff's Capt. Mike Barnett told The Union-Tribune deputies believe they know where he lives.

Deputies responding to a report of someone shooting into a home on Calac Road from a car spotted a vehicle matching the one used the crime and started chasing it on Valley Center Road, Barnett said.

The driver eventually crashed on a farm road, and a deputy who got out of his car nearby fired at the vehicle as the driver backed toward him, Barnett said. No one was shot.

Nelson was arrested near the car. The other man got away, despite a search of the area by about 40 law enforcement officers.
