Four men were arrested on suspicion of battery and brandishing a firearm  — which turned out to be a pellet gun — following a fight in the parking lot of a Carl’s Jr. restaurant in Glendora, a Glendora Police Department sergeant said Sunday.

Officers were dispatched at 5:30 p.m. Saturday to the eatery at 810 S. Grand Ave., in response to a report of a fight in progress involving a handgun, according to Glendora police Sgt. Michael Henderson.

The suspects fled prior to the arrival of police, but were found a short time later in a vehicle, in the area of Mauna Loa Avenue and Vecino Drive, Henderson said.

The pellet gun had been thrown from the vehicle when the suspects fled the scene, but was recovered near the traffic stop, Henderson said.

A motive for the fight was unknown, he said. No injuries were reported.

Glendora residents Austin Montes, 18; Aasheer Sharma, 18; Ricardo Loza Jr., 18, and John Bitar, were booked on suspicion of battery and brandishing a firearm, he said.
