Suspects in Palmdale Shooting ID'd

PALMDALE, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has identified three men arrested in connection with a car-to-car shooting that critically wounded a 7-year-old girl in Palmdale.

Officials said Thursday that detectives arrested 22-year-old Jesus Peralta of Palmdale, 19-year-old Carlos Peralta of Palmdale, and 20-year-old Eduardo Diaz of Littlerock. They were booked on suspicion of attempted murder and are being held on $1 million bail.

Detectives aren't looking for additional suspects.

Authorities said the incident occurred at about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday with an argument between occupants of two cars at a gas station in the high desert city.

When the girl and her family drove away, they were followed by the other car and multiple gunshots were fired in a chase through a residential neighborhood.

The shooting remains under investigation.
