SANTA CLARA  — The Santa Clara Police Department reported the arrest of two individuals found to be fighting near a car lot located along the 4200 block of Stevens Creek Boulevard near Kiely Boulevard, along the Santa Clara/San Jose border.

According to Sgt. Enrique Garcia with the San Jose Police Department, during a fight between three individuals, Santa Clara Police witnessed several males fighting.  During a brief altercation one of the suspects began firing at the other suspects walking near the sidewalk in front of the car lot Toyota.

During a quick lockdown of the area the Santa Clara Police Department called in for the help of the San Jose Police to try and locate the third suspect who had fled the scene on foot and was considered extremely dangerous.
