San Jose police arrest gang member who shot at 2 officers

ABC7 News has learned that a 20-year-old gang member has been arrested for shooting at two San Jose police officers Sunday night.

Police took Louis Soriano, a parolee, into custody in connection with the incident near Luby and Ripley drives.

The two officers were not hurt.

The police union had offered a $10,000 reward in the shooting they call an "assassination attempt."

The officers were walking toward a group of men near Luby and Ripley drives Sunday when one of them opened fire.

Garcia said the shooting will not deter his officers from keeping a high profile in the neighborhood where gangs are trying to take over.
