A 38-year-old man was arrested Monday for allegedly wounding three people in a shooting at a Chatsworth strip mall nearly two months ago.

Richard Arturo Gandara III, of San Fernando, was allegedly involved in a physical altercation about 12:30 a.m. on May 16 with security guards and another person at the shopping mall in the 20900 block of Lassen Street.

He allegedly retrieved a handgun and “fired numerous times in the direction of an operating business,” shooting three people in the process, then fled in a vehicle driven by an unknown suspect, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement.

Gandara was arrested Monday in San Fernando and booked on suspicion of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, the LAPD reported.
