A 22 year-old, Hispanic male was sitting in a car with his cousin and another male in the area of Calaveras Drive and El Dorado, when a male walked up to them and stuck a handgun through an open car window. The suspect called the victim by a wrong name, accusing him of being a gang drop out. The suspect put the gun to the victim's chest and the victim batted it down with his hand. A shot was fired, which struck the victim in his upper thigh. The suspect ran away after firing the shot. The victim was ultimately driven to a local hospital and treated for what appeared to be a non-life threatening wound.
