2 arrests for drive-by that wounded Othello child

OTHELLO, Wash. (AP) - Adams County authorities say they have arrested two men in connection to a drive-by shooting that left a 4-year-old child with a bullet fragment in his head.

The Adams County Sheriff Doug Barger says Felipe Michael Garza and Cesar Chavez-Serna were arrested Monday night in two different Othello homes.

Barger says investigators found the car they believe was used in the drive-by at the same house where Garza was arrested. The car was taken to the Washington State Crime Lab to be processed.

The Tri-City Herald reports ( http://bit.ly/ZYJZIx) the child was wounded Friday when he and four family members were in a red Cadillac. A brown car pulled up and fired several rounds from a 9mm pistol into the car. The family then drove about five blocks to their house while the suspects chased them.

The child was treated at a local hospital and released hours later.
