Man sought in Carson City shooting

Two others arrested; no injuries reported

Carson City Sheriff’s Office deputies are seeking information about a suspect wanted in a shooting between two vehicles.
The suspect, described as a black male adult, wearing a gray hoodie was last seen after a crash in Placer County.
The incident started at 3:20 a.m. on Tuesday when deputies responded to the area North Carson Street and Hot Springs Road to investigate a reported shooting between two vehicles traveling southbound on Carson Street.
While responding to the area, deputies located one of the involved vehicles traveling southbound on North Carson Street and attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle. The driver sped away and led Deputies on a 20-minute pursuit. Deputies lost visual of the suspect vehicle on State Route 28 near Sand Harbor. Approximately 40 minutes later the Placer County Sheriff’s Office discovered the suspect vehicle crashed and unoccupied at the intersection of State Route 28 and Stagg Drive. Two female occupants of the suspect vehicle were discovered hiding approximately 200 feet away from the vehicle and were taken into custody.
The two female suspects were transported to the Carson City Sheriff’s Office where they were later booked for eluding the police, conspiracy to commit assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to discharge a firearm at a vehicle.
The second vehicle involved in the shooting was determined to be the victim’s vehicle.  The victim’s vehicle was hit in the windshield by a bullet fired from the suspect vehicle.  The victim does not know the suspects.  At this time the shooting appears to be a random act of violence, the Carson City Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.  
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, Dispatch (775) 887-2008, Detective Kevin Murry (775)283-7853, Investigation Division, Sergeant Craig Lowe (775) 283-7815, Lieutenant Daniel Gonzales at (775) 283-7850, or Secret Witness (775) 322-4900.
