Police make fourth arrest in Jamacha-area undercover officer involved shooting

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — San Diego Police detectives arrested a fourth suspect in connection to an officer involved shooting Monday night. A plainclothes detective was shot at as he investigated gang activity in the Jamacha-Lomita neighborhood. The detective was not hit, but his car was left "riddled" with bullets, according to reports of the incident. 

30-year-old Larry Jones was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, making him the fourth suspect taken into custody from the incident, according to San Diego Police Lt. Ray Valentin. 31-year-old Kimberly Denise Hooker was arrested shortly after the shooting Monday night, while two other men whose names were not disclosed will also face weapons and other charges. 

The shooting occurred when a plainclothes detective was investigating gang activity in the vicinity of Glencoe Dr. and Jamacha Rd. Monday night. Someone exited a white Toyota Corolla and opened fire on the officer. A responding officer stopped the Toyota on Jamacha Rd. following the shooting, and one of the occupants left the vehicle and fled the scene, according to Lt. Valentin. An officer shot at the fleeing man, believed to be Jones, but he continued running. 

Authorities did not release information on how they identified Jones as a fourth suspect in the shooting.
