SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — Two Santa Rosa brothers allegedly fired an assault rifle at a home after they were ejected from a party early Sunday morning, police said.

The shooting was reported shortly before 2 a.m. on Lutztown Court, when a tan jeep SUV drive through the area firing gunshots before it collided with a parked vehicle, according to Sgt. David Linscomb.

Witnesses told police that suspects involved in a fight at a party on the court had been told to leave, but had returned 5 to 10 minutes later with an assault rifle.

No one was struck or injured, Linscomb said.

Police located an SUV matching the suspect vehicle description nearby on Papago Court, with damage from a collision and spent rifle casings on the floodboard.

The vehicle was traced to an apartment on Apple Valley Lane, and police arrested Alexis Jaime Rueda, 22, and his brother Eduardo Carlos Rueda, 21.

The rifle allegedly used in the shooting was found in a shed near the apartment, Linscomb said.

Both brothers were arrested on suspicion of discharging a firearm in a negligent manner and possession of assault rifles, Linscomb said.
