Two Pacoima men and a juvenile were arrested Monday after firing a shotgun at an occupied car in Palmdale, Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies said.

Warren Washington, 20, Dirk Brown, 18, and the juvenile, whose age was unavailable, were arrested at 2 a.m. on suspicion of attempted murder after a Cadillac they were driving was stopped by deputies. It had been spotted chasing a Suzuki Samurai on Palmdale Boulevard near 10th Street East, Antelope Valley sheriff's station deputies said.

Two people in the Suzuki, who were not identified, said the suspects in the Cadillac had fired a shotgun at them at least twice while chasing them for an unknown reason, deputies said. Investigators found a recently fired shotgun inside the Cadillac, deputies said.

Washington and Brown were being held without bail at the Antelope Valley station's jail, officials said. The juvenile was turned over to youth authorities.
