There’s been an arrest in a drive-by shooting over the summer in Ventura County which left a pregnant woman, and her young daughter injured. It happened last July, in Port Hueneme.

A family of five was in a home on the 100 block of East Pearl Drive when shots were fired at the house. A seven year old girl was seriously injured and her mother was hurt.

Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives say Anthony Silerio of Oxnard was arrested this week for the attack. The 18 year old is facing charges ranging from attempted murder to street terrorism.
