3 Arrested in High Desert Gang Shootings
HESPERIA, Calif. (KTLA) -- San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputies arrested three men Monday after at least one of them allegedly shot at a home in two separated gang-related incidents.

No one was injured in either shootings.

Deputies responded to a report of shots fired about 1:23 p.m. Monday in the 14700 block of Olive Street. Once there, they spoke to a witness who said he "exchanged words" with a Latino man between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday, according to a Sheriff's news release. The man the witness spoke to claimed a gang affiliation and walked away.

The witness told deputies that he saw the taillights of an unknown vehicle after shooting Monday. Deputies searched for the vehicle but found nothing, according to the news release.

Deputies again responded to a shots fired call just before 8 p.m. in the same area. A different witness reported seeing "several subjects" run through a nearby open field. The witness gave a description of the shooter to the deputies, according to the news release.

The deputies searched the area and found a Latino man matching the description of the shooter. They later detained four other men. After questioning, the deputies learned that three of the men were members of a gang in the High Desert area.

The investigation revealed Sergio Lupian, 24, of Hesperia, to be the shooter, according to the news release. The deputies learned that two of the other men they detained -- Michael Paez, 29, and Victor Gonzalez, 27, both of Hesperia -- were on parole.

Deputies arrested Lupian on suspicion of shooting at an inhabited dwelling and participating in a criminal street gang. He was booked at Adelanto Detention Center. His bail was set at $25,000.

Paez and Gonzalez are both being held at Victor Valley Station without bail.

The motive of the alleged shootings is still unknown, according to the news release.
