KING CITY — An 18-year-old from King City has been arrested for attempted murder after he was allegedly involved in the shooting of an occupied vehicle on Monday.

On April 22, at about 6 p.m., the King City Police Department was dispatched to the alleyway behind the 600 block of Meyer Street in King City for the report of shots fired. Upon arrival to the area, evidence of a shooting was located.
