A 19-year-old woman was behind bars on suspicion of shooting two 24-year-old men in the Webster area, then crashing into a parked car when she tried to drive away.

The shooting happened around 3 p.m. Sunday on Dafter Place, a cul-de- sac off Euclid Avenue, San Diego Police Officer John Buttle said.

A woman, whose age was not immediately available, and a 24-year-old man drove to Dafter Place to pick up a friend, another 24-year-old man, Buttle said.

The 19-year-old woman was waiting in her vehicle with the friend when the other two arrived and the man got out of the 19-year-old woman’s vehicle and entered the rear seat of the other vehicle, the officer said. The teenager then made a U-turn, pulled up alongside the other vehicle and fired five shots, hitting one man in the shoulder and the other man in the temple, Buttle said.

The other woman drove both men to a hospital for treatment of their injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening, Buttle said.

The suspect attempted to flee the scene in her vehicle, but crashed into a parked car near the intersection of Deaton Drive and Dafter Drive, he said.

She then got out of the vehicle and hid the firearm in the bushes, but was taken into custody when she returned to her vehicle, Buttle said, adding that officers found the firearm a short time later.

Authorities have not disclosed a suspected motive for the shooting.

The suspect, identified as Macayla White, was booked into Las Colinas Detention Facility on suspicion of two counts of attempted murder and one count each of assault with a firearm and carrying a concealed firearm, according to jail records. She was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
