Two Hispanic men are in custody and deputies are searching for two others after a car pulled alongside a patrol vehicle and one of its occupants shot toward a Carson City deputy late Saturday evening, according to Sheriff Ken Furlong.
Furlong said the deputy targeted was running radar at College Parkway just before 11 p.m. Saturday as a vehicle containing four people approached from the east. Someone inside the vehicle pointed a gun out of the car window and fired at the deputy, Furlong said.
The deputy, Gary Underhill, was not hurt as a result of the incident.
The suspect vehicle was located and Paul Perez, 22, was taken into custody by deputies. Furlong said Perez is a member of a well-known Hispanic street gang.
The second man arrested, Abel Rivera, 34, is also a gang member, Furlong said.
Both suspects are from Carson City.
Several other gang members found in the area at the time - near the 2600 block of College Parkway - were also taken into department custody, though their names weren't available as of early Sunday morning, Furlong added.
