Two suspected gang members from Fresno were arrested Wednesday after allegedly threatening a drive-by shooting in Bakersfield.
Detectives were conducting a follow-up investigation at a convenience store at 4th Street and Union Avenue when they saw the suspect vehicle, police said. A person leaned out the passenger side window pointing a gun in the detectives' direction but did not fire.
Police chased the vehicle north on Union Avenue and it stopped at P Street and California Avenue. Police said Mandell Jones, 19, and Samuel Harper, 20, were arrested on suspicion of crimes including assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy.
Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.
