SPARKS, NV - Sparks police are looking for the person who fired a gun during a drive-by shooting early Wednesday morning.

Police say sometime after midnight, one person was shot in an arm with a semi-automatic handgun. It happened on O Street, near Probasco Way.

Two men were standing outside a home as the car drove by. Police say the men thought the car looked suspicious because it was driving slowly.

A man in the car confronted the men on the street, then fired several shots from the back seat.

One man was hit and taken to a hospital, and is expected to be ok.

Police are looking for a small white four-door sedan with a spoiler and tinted windows. The driver was a black man, the passenger was a woman and the passenger in the back seat was an Hispanic man, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.

if anyone has any information about this case they are encouraged to contact the Sparks Police Department or Secret Witness, which is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to arrest and conviction.
