Local News in Brief : Laguna Hills : 2 Gardeners Struck by BBs Fired From Car

November 27, 1987

A Laguna Hills gardener was struck in the shoulder and another was hit in the leg by BBs fired from a car, a Sheriff's Department spokesman said.

Deputies said the shots were fired from a light blue Nissan sedan at about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

In a third incident, Lt. Randy Blair said, someone in the same car fired at a man but missed and broke a window in a residence.

Blair said deputies believe that it may have been pranksters.

The first victim was identified as Jose Lopez-Mora, who was working in front of a residence.

The second victim, Rangel Vesereno, 22, was struck in the upper leg.

Both were treated and released from Mission Hospital Regional Medical Center, Blair said.
