Police have arrested three men in connection with a Monday night drive-by shooting in the 1300 block of West Lynne Avenue.

Authorities also arrested two teenage girls who were in the suspects' car at the time of the incident on unrelated charges, Sgt. Joe Vargas said Tuesday.

No one was injured in the shooting, which police believe was gang-related.

Police said security officers from the Event Control Team saw gunshots fired from a brown 1983 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The security officers followed the car and notified the Anaheim Police Department, which dispatched units and a department helicopter.

Police said a weapon was thrown from the vehicle shortly before they stopped it on West Cerritos Avenue.

Edger Ojeda, Andrew Frenes and Joseph Rodriguez were arrested and charged with attempted murder.

Police said they do not know the identities of the intended victims but said that a group of men was standing in front of the apartment complex where the shooting took place.
