Gang detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Pasadena police officers arrested Thursday three Pasadena men for attempted murder in connection with a shooting in Duarte in January, and recovered “multiple pieces of evidence” related to the incident.

Authorities said Thursday the three are suspects in the shooting on January 7 at Bloomdale Street in Duarte. Two men were injured in the incident, one of them sustaining critical injuries.

The Sheriff’s Department said gang detectives from the Department’s Operation Safe Streets Bureau assigned to Temple Station investigated the shooting, interviewed the victims and recovered evidence at the scene.

A follow-up investigation resulted in Thursday’s arrests.

“During the investigation, and with the assistance of Pasadena Police officers, multiple search and arrest warrants were authored and served today, February 16, 2017, at approximately 10 a.m.,” LASD said in a statement. “As a result, multiple pieces of evidence have been recovered and three suspects involved in the crime have been arrested and charged with attempted murder.”

The Sheriff’s Department said two of the suspects arrested were both 27 years old and the other was 32, all of them residents of Pasadena, whose names were not released at this time as the investigation is ongoing.

The detectives also arrested a fourth man, a 23-year-old Pasadena resident, for being a felon in possession of a firearm. His identify has been withheld as well.

The LASD is advising anyone with information about the incident to contact its Operation Safe Streets Bureau, through Detective Franklin or Detective Retamoza, at (626) 292-3341.
