Police were able to track down the young man accused of shooting at a family in their truck. 

It happened late Wednesday night when a young man and his 14-year-old brother were picking up their mom from work at the Lindo Mexico Restaurant on Central. 

Police say 18-year-old Mariano Gallegos stepped in front of the family’s vehicle. 

Gallegos then fired shots at them.

The man was hit by a bullet in his hand, but no one else was injured.

Officers were able to track Gallegos to a nearby neighborhood.

According to a criminal complaint, this all started over a dirty look. 

It does not appear he knew the family.
