Investigators say the main suspect is 21-year-old Anthony Carrera. He's a known gang member with an extensive violent criminal history.

Police say they had just arrested Carrera on a parole violation last Friday. He was released the next day. Then Wednesday, they say he shot a gun multiple times at two plain clothes police officers in the area of Third and Ventura Avenue. Officers also returned fire -- but no one was injured.

Carrera was later arrested in the front yard of a nearby home. Three other men believed to be affiliated with a gang were also arrested.
