A shooting in September that left three people injured led to a string of arrests and the seizure of several firearms by law enforcement officials, a sheriff’s sergeant said Saturday.

The shooting occurred at about 8:10 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the 5000 block of Troth Street, and caused three people to be hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, said Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Nathan Padilla.

“At the time of the initial investigation, it was believed the shooting was gang-related, however no suspects were identified,” he said.

On Dec. 4, a 17-year-old male suspected of being one of the shooters and of being an active gang member was arrested after a search warrant executed at his home by sheriff’s deputies turned up a loaded gun, according to Padilla.

Authorities did not release the name of the teen.

A second person was arrested in connection with the case on Friday after another search warrant was served at a home in the 10500 block of Jurupa Road.

There, deputies found several loaded firearms, including an AK-47 assault rifle, Padilla said.

Daniel Orozco, 45, of Jurupa Valley was arrested on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and various other gun-related crimes.

He remained behind bars in lieu of $50,000 bail.
