Two men and a 16-year-old boy were arrested Sunday night after allegedly firing shots at two locations in Bay Point and then leading deputies on a 27-mile chase into San Pablo, Contra Costa County Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said today. The sheriff's office received a call at about 11:10 p.m. reporting shots being fired in the 200 block of Bailey Road in the unincorporated Bay Point area. About 10 minutes later, the sheriff's office received a second call, this time reporting shots being fired at a nearby gas station, Lee said. The caller gave dispatchers a description of the vehicle and said it was headed westbound on state Highway 4, Lee said. Deputies caught up to the vehicle on the highway and attempted to stop it, but the vehicle kept going. Deputies chased the vehicle all the way to San Pablo, where they finally stopped it at San Pablo Dam Road. One of the suspects allegedly resisted arrest and deputies shot him with a Taser to subdue him, Lee said. Jason Dye and Armando Calderon, both 21, and a 16-year-old boy were arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and felony evasion of a police officer, Lee said. No injuries were reported, Lee said, and no vehicles were damaged. It was not clear from initial reports what the group was shooting at or whether they hit anything, Lee said.
