Suspects Accused of Firing on Deputies in Vista Arrested

The suspects were reportedly randomly firing shots from a red pickup truck around Rose and Maryland drives

Two people are in custody after a suspect fired shots at San Diego County Sheriff's Department (SDSO) deputies early Wednesday. 

At around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, deputies responded to several calls of someone randomly firing shots in the area of Rose and Maryland drives.

Witnesses said the shots possibly came from a red pickup truck that fled the scene. Just after midnight Wednesday, as deputies investigated another call of shots being fired, they spotted the red pickup truck.

Deputies tried to stop the truck, but the occupants fired at the deputies and took off. The deputies pursued the truck but lost the vehicle in the area.

No deputies or citizens were injured in the gunfire.

A short time later, deputies found the red pickup abandoned at The Meadows apartment homes on Meadowlake Drive. Deputies launched a search around the complex for the suspects.

Several hours later, deputies arrested two men.
