Four suspects arrested for shooting critically injured Lakeside teen

Four people have been arrested in connection with a shooting in Lakeside that left a teenager in critical condition last month, sheriff’s officials said.

The suspects are Carley Lucille Morales, 25, Stephen Jerewane Driver, 39, and Edward Carl Davis, 25, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Additionally, a 17-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the shooting. His name has not been released as he is a minor.

The incident happened just before 1 a.m. Nov. 6 on Ashwood Street near Mapleview Street, a few blocks south of El Capitan High School, the department said.

Investigators said a 16-year-old boy and his two teenage companions were confronted by a group of people. The confrontation turned into an argument and then a physical confrontation when two members of the group assaulted one of the teenagers.

One of the assailants retrieved a gun and chased the 16-year-old.

The boy was shot in the lower back, Sheriff Sgt. Colin Hebeler said in a press release.

The boy was taken to hospital for treatment of serious injuries. He is still receiving medical attention but is expected to survive, Hebeler said.

OnScene TV footage taken at the time of the incident showed heavily armed sheriff’s deputies searching the area with the help of a sheriff’s helicopter, but all four suspects had fled the area.

The San Diego Fugitive Task Force arrested Davis and Morales at a hotel near downtown San Diego on November 19. Davis is being held in a county jail on bail set at $1 million.

Days later, U.S. marshals arrested Driver without incident in Bedford, Ohio on Nov. 23, sheriff’s officials said.

The 17-year-old suspect was taken into custody after he was seen walking in the same area where the shooting took place on Dec. 8, sheriff’s officials said.

There are no outstanding suspects, according to the sheriff’s department.
