The District Attorney's office rejected Tuesday a case against Jose Carlos Nunez, 19, who officials had suspected was involved in a gang-related shooting.

"The district attorney declined to file on the basis that there was insufficient evidence," said Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

The district attorney declined to file one count of attempted murder and one count of assault with a firearm, Gibbons said.

Nunez, of Sylmar, was arrested Friday while at a hospital where he was being treated for an apparent gunshot wound. Sheriff's officials said the shooting occurred about 7:20 p.m. near the intersection of Newhall Avenue and Valle Del Oro in Newhall.

Sheriff's officials said no innocent bystanders were hurt in the shooting, however they were not sure how many suspects were involved or injured.
