Rodriguez then approached the victim’s car on foot while carrying a large caliber revolver and began shooting into the vehicle. The victim returned fire at Rodriguez. No one was injured in the exchange of gunfire.
Rodriguez has a prior strike conviction for assault with a firearm and had just been released from prison before committing these crimes.
