Two teenagers were arrested Friday on charges of shooting a gun at passing vehicles on the 2600 block of California Street. 

Berkeley Police arrested an 18-year-old who is a student at Berkeley High School and a 15-year-old boy on charges of conspiracy, possession of a 9 mm gun, and intent to sell marijuana. Police charge that they were taking turns shooting at passing cars. 

Police believe that no one was hurt and that there wasn’t any property damage. They located the 18-year-old in a nearby home, while the juvenile was located near the scene of the crime. 

“We got calls from concerned citizens that helped us find the suspects,” said Lt. Wes Hester, spokesman for the Berkeley Police Department. “Without that, we would have not able to locate the suspects. We want to give the community a big thanks.”
