A teenage employee is recovering after being shot at a local pizza parlor. The suspect, also shot, was arrested.
Police said officers were called to the Domino’s in the 2300 block of Brunadge Lane just after 7 p.m. for reports of shots fired there.
Police arrived and found two people with gunshot wounds. Police said a 21-year-old man and a teenage girl had suffered minor to moderate gunshot wounds. They were both taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police said the girl was an employee and the 21-year old man, identified as Rodrigo Marin, was a customer.
Marin entered the store and after a disagreement, attempted to forcibly remove food, according to police. A struggle between Marin and the employees broke out and that is when police say his firearm fell to the ground where it went off, hitting Marin and the girl.
Marin fled the scene but was found less than a mile away, at Buena Vista and F streets.
Both were transported to a local hospital with minor to moderate wounds. Marin was later arrested for robbery, burglary, carrying an unlawful concealed weapon in public and negligent discharge of a firearm.
He has been booked into a Kern County Jail.
