Two suspects involved in an April shooing in El Rio were arrested by Ventura police officers Friday.On April 30, the two suspects were believed to be involved in a drive-by shooting near the intersection of Vineyard Avenue and Forest Park Boulevard.

As the suspects were driving, they saw a group of four people who they believed were from a rival gang. The suspects chased the victims to Orange Drive, where the four ran into a residence in the 100 block of the street.

As the suspects' vehicle passed the home, the suspects fired one round at the victims.

Deputies responded to the scene and were able to recover a shell casing and also spoke with several witnesses. After much investigation, authorities identified the driver of the vehicle as 19-year-old Daniel Magana.

During a search of Magana's residence in the 2600 block of Colonia Avenue, police recovered information leading to the second suspect, 21-year-old Andrew Robles.

The two men were arrested Saturday for assault with a deadly weapon and street terrorism. Upon searching Robles's residence, authorities recovered a pistol, which is being analyzed to determine if it was used in the April shooting.

Robles remains in custody on $100,000 bail, and Magana remains in custody on $200,000 bail.
