(LAKESIDE) CBS8 - Authorities shut down part of Ashwood Street in front of El Capitan High School for hours Thursday evening, after a police cruiser and at least two other vehicles were struck by a volley of rocks hurled from a hillside overlooking the road.
Part of the windshield of the police cruiser, driven by veteran K9 officer TJ Andrews, was shattered. Andrews and his canine partner had been heading into work when his vehicle was hit.
San Diego police, sheriff's deputies and CHP officers all took part in an intensive search, from the ground and from the air, for whomever was responsible for throwing the rocks.
The search ultimately led authorities to the home of Lakeside resident Erik Jackson, who lives above the stretch of Ashwood where the vehicles had been struck.
Jackson told News 8 that police had questioned his tenant's 14-year-old son, who he had seen, along with two other teen-aged boys, hanging out on the hillside earlier in the evening.
A police source confirmed the 14-year-old was detained and interrogated, but was not placed under arrest. The two other teen had not yet been located.
"I can't believe they did it, if they did it," Jackson told News 8. "It absolutely is dangerous, throwing rocks at cars. It's crazy."
