TEMPE, Ariz. -- The Arizona State University Police Department arrested a suspect in last week's drive-by shooting on the West Campus.

David Huynh, 26, was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful discharge of a firearm, drive-by shooting, disorderly conduct-discharging a firearm, endangerment, and threatening and intimidating.

ASU police detectives, with the assistance of Phoenix police officers, arrested Huynh Wednesday afternoon after serving a search warrant at his home. ASU police Cmdr. Jim Hardina said police recovered the firearm used in the shooting.

Hardina said Huynh and four juveniles were driving in a car around ASU West on Nov. 3 when they threatened a group of people playing volleyball.

After words were exchanged, a juvenile driving the car brandished an airsoft gun at the volleyball players.

Hardina said Huynh removed a handgun from his waistband, pointed the gun at the group and then fired a single shot. The car then left the area.

There were no injuries.

Huynh reportedly confessed to discharging the handgun.
