RAMONA (CNS) - A 26-year-old man suspected of opening fire on a man and his two children as they ran for cover in Ramona was arrested early Friday, authorities said.
The victim told sheriff's investigators that the suspect, later identified as Brandon Quiroz, had pointed a handgun at him and his children and fired six shots in the 200 block of Third Street near Main Street shortly after 9 p.m. Thursday, sheriff's Sgt. Brent Strahm said.
About 3:20 a.m. Friday, a deputy spotted Quiroz walking near the intersection of Pile Street and Pamo Road and arrested him without incident, Strahm said, adding that a loaded .357-caliber revolver, ammunition and spent shell casings were found on him.
Quiroz was booked into jail on suspicion of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and shooting at an inhabited dwelling, according to the sergeant.
