April 12, 2013

Costa Mesa police continued their search Friday for a gunman suspected of firing three shots at a father and his 6-year-old son as they walked down Victoria Street, police said.

The man, described as a Latino in his 20s, fired the shots from a black Honda Accord with dark rear windows about 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the Costa Mesa Police Department.

As the man and his son walked along Victoria near Puente Avenue, the driver of the Accord pointed a small handgun at the pair, who dropped to the ground and heard three gunshots, police said.
