YUMA, AZ- Police make arrests in a Yuma drive-by shooting near Kennedy Park and they say it may have gang ties.
Yuma police say people in two cars were shooting at each other shortly before 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Neighbors who were around at the time say they heard a pop-pop-pop and what sounded like cars racing.
One eyewitness we spoke to was out with her toddler son when the shootings occurred. She says the people from two vehicle were shooting at each other and that they wanted to hurt each other. The young mother is so terrified of the incident that she didn't want to be identified.
Police continue to gather information on the vehicles involved, a red Isuzu Rodeo and a white Jeep SUV.
Yuma police stopped the suspects in the red Isuzu in the 2800 block of Pacific Avenue. One of them ran off and still hasn't been found. Police took the others into custody.
Police identify the suspects as 18 year old Adrian Covarrubias, 19 year olds Gabriel Lugo and Marlee Cahoe.
Another suspect, a 15 year old male, was booked in the juvenile detention center.
Covarrubias, Lugo and Cahoe are each facing one felony count of criminal street gang participation.
They all appeared in Yuma Justice court Wednesday afternoon. Covarrubias had additional charges. Lugo shook his head as Judge Gregory Stewart addressed him. And Cahoe hid her face and fidgeted in court. At times, she appeared unclear on Judge Stewart's instructions.
Covarrubias, Lugo and Cahoe return to justice court on Friday.
Meanwhile, Yuma police continue to search for the people that got away in the in the white SUV.
