    Mira Mesa Car Shooting Investigation Leads to Sorrento Valley Chase

    San Diego Police officers investigating the report of shots fired at a vehicle arrested a suspect near a Sorrento Valley business park.

    Someone fired a gun into a Mira Mesa man’s car, shattering the windows around 1:30 a.m., according to police. Officers were called to Camino Ruiz and Reagan Road at 3:50 a.m. and found the vehicle with its windows shattered.

    Investigators say police located a suspect vehicle Friday morning and waited for the driver to return to the vehicle.  The man behind the wheel refused to stop for police and began a pursuit.

    Near Vista Sorrento Parkway and Via Landline, the suspect jumped from the vehicle and ran into the bushes.

    Officers surrounded the intersection at Lusk Blvd and Vista Sorrento Parkway just south of the Interstate 5, Interstate 805 merge.

    Police confirmed as of 11:10 a.m. the suspect was in custody.

    NBC 7's Rory Devine spoke with the man in custody who identified himself as Brian Berry. He told NBC 7 he messed up trying to get away but was not involved in last night's incident.

    The suspect said he believes police were looking for him because he failed to check in with his probation officer.

    Officials said Berry, 22, faces two charges of assault with a deadly weapon stemming from the Mira Mesa incident.

    No one was injured.

    Late Thursday, San Diego Police were investigating the report of a shooting in Lincoln Park.

    Shots were fired into at least one parked car along Solola Avenue at 10:30 p.m.

    Officers said no one was injured in this shooting.

    SDPD officials said they had two other calls of shootings involving vehicles Thursday but have not said the shootings are related.
