Police have few clues to follow on what they described as a "brazen" gangland drive-by shooting that seriously wounded an Oxnard teen-ager on Hughes Drive in Oxnard early Friday morning. Before the 17-year-old was shot, police had been called to the area, responding to complaints that gang members riddled the area with bullets about midnight. When police arrived in the neighborhood, residents pelted them with rocks and bottles.

No fatal traffic accidents were reported on county roads and highways during the three-day weekend, drunk-driving arrests were down appreciably, and visitors to the mountains and beaches were well-behaved for the most part, officials said.
