Two Lancaster men have been arrested in connection with a shooting on the northbound 405 Freeway this week that left another person injured, according to authorities.
The suspects, Elijah Allen Greene, 24, and Jaden Allen Greene, 18, were taken into custody Tuesday, according to the California Highway Patrol. The men are brothers, said CHP Officer Weston Hower.
Officers responded to a report of a car-to-car shooting on the northbound 405 Freeway on the northbound side of Victory Boulevard at approximately 3:24 p.m. Monday.
The CHP said that before officers arrived, the suspects fled the scene in their vehicle and the victim was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
Investigators said the suspects robbed the victim on city streets before driving off, and the victim followed them onto the freeway, where their vehicles collided with each other.
“Immediately following the accident, a passenger in the suspect’s vehicle fired at the victim’s vehicle, hitting the victim with one of the rounds,” the CHP said. “Witnesses to the shooting, as well as Los Angeles Police Department detectives, were able to provide information that helped CHP West Valley Area investigators and CHP Investigative Services Unit detectives investigate this attempted robbery and murder.” “
On Tuesday, CHP detectives executed search warrants at two locations in Lancaster and arrested two suspects. Officials said investigators also found illegal firearms.
According to the Highway Patrol, the two brothers were booked on suspicion of robbery and attempt to murder. Jaden Green was also booked on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a crime.
Elijah Greene was held on $1 million bail, jail records show. Jaden Green was being held on $750,000 bail.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the CHP’s West Valley Area Office at (818) 888-0980.
