Shots were fired today at a taftker truck on the Golden State Freeway and at a motorcyclist on the Hollywood Boulevard on-ramp to the Hollywood Freeway — the location where the Guardian Angels handed out fliers last week urging motorists to drive defensively and report violence to police. Reunald Parker, 28, of North Hollywood, told police he was driving his motorcycle near Hollywood Boulevard and Western Avenue about 3:30 a.m. when a car made a U-turn in front of him. When Parker tried to get the car's license plate, he was followed to the on-ramp where the car's driver took one shot at him and missed, said police Sgt. Charles Meter. Parker followed the alleged assailant to a home in Van Nuys and notified police, who arrested arrested Robert Salas, 21, for investigation of attempted murder, Meter said. As for a motive, Meter said: "He was an angry motorist." The tanker truck was hit by gunfire on the Golden State Freeway, Interstate 5, near Lankershim in Sun Valley about 1:30 ajn. today, said California Highway Patrol dispatcher Bob Neely. There were no injuries, Neely said, adding that he didn't know what kind of cargo the truck carried. Another motorist reported being fired on a short time earlier from the same vehicle, a green Chevrolet panel van, Neely said. In a weekend attack. Henry Kingi, ex-husband of actress Lindsay Wagner and a stunt man on TV's "The Dukes of Hazzard" and "The A Team," was shot in the arm and side after arguing with a Jeep full of teen-agers Saturday. He was in stable condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center early today, said hospital spokesman Ron Wise. Police sought a teen-ager in the shooting, which took place after an argument at a traffic light in Studio City. In the most recent incident, a tanker truck was hit by gunfire on the Interstate 5 in Sun Valley early today, said California Highway Patrol dispatcher Bob Neely. There were no injuries, Neely said. Another motorist reported being fired on a short time earlier from the same vehicle, a green Chevrolet panel van, Neely said. In two incidents reported earlier to a CHP hot line, there were neither injures nor evidence shots actually were fired. On Sunday night, the driver of a red Corvette fired a semiautomatic weapon into the air while driving on Interstate 5 north of downtown, according to a caller. CHP Officer Diane Lowery said the accuracy of the report hadn't been confirmed. Earlier Sunday night, a woman reported seeing a flash of gunfire from the window of a rust-colored van on 1-5 in San Fernando, police said. There were no incidents during the daytime Sunday, authorities said. Among the incidents Saturday: — In La Mirada on Saturday evening, four people were hurt in chain-reaction automobile crash that started when a car was rammed after a dispute on a highway. Kevin Leamihan, 31, of La Mirada was being held today at the Norwalk sheriff's station for investigation of attempted murder in connection with the incident Doreen Delgadillo, 25, of Whittier, a passenger in one of the rammed cars, was in critical condition today, and three others were injured in the crash, police said. — On Saturday afternoon. Gustavo Perez of Venice was arrested for investigation of attempted murder after two bystanders received minor shotgun injuries following a traffic confrontation between Perez and an unidentified individual who fled. — On Saturday morning, shots were reportedly fired at a tractor- trailer rig on Highway 60 in Moreno Valley, 70 miles east of Los Angeles. Richard Buttles, 31, of Rubidoux and Richard McCauley, 29, of Bloomington, were booked for investigation of firing into an occupied vehicle after a teen-ager reported the shooting, police said. No one was hurt Sierra fire victims returning to homes WOODFORDS, Calif. (AP) — Some 300 people evacuated from this tiny Sierra Nevada mountain hamlet will try to salvage today what's left of their community, following the control of a blaze that caused nearly $5 million in damages and destroyed 24 homes. More than 1,500 firefighters controlled the wind-whipped fire late Sunday as investigators continued searching for the cause of the blaze. Residents were allowed to return to their blackened community earlier in the day. The fire, which started Wednesday, was declared controlled about SO p.m. Sundathorities believe the 6,600-acre blaze was accidental, said Nate Leising of the U.S. Forest Service. The arson investigation is being hampered by the extremely rocky terrain, he said. Federal and state fire damage assessment teams combed through the area, and Alpine County Sheriff Larry Kuhl reported they estimated the value of the damaged and destroyed homes at $5 million. That figure does not include the value of the contents of the homes, he added. "And there are things that can't be counted," Kuhl said. "People come here for the asthetic values, for fishing and all that" The fire broke out in a steep canyon west of the Nevada border and left a fourth of (he estimated 100 families who lived in Woodfords homeless. Some local residents complained that the Forest Service response to the fire was too slow and volunteers who snowed up at the scene immediately after the fire began should not have been dismissed. But Kuhl disagreed. "I don't see anything that they could have done differently, even looking back and second- guessing," he said. Winds that gusted up to 40 mph combined with the steep countryside to help quickly whip the fire into an inferno that was difficult to reach with water, he said. About 1,000 firefighters remained at the scene on Sunday. Three firefighters suffered minor injuries — a twisted knee, cut leg and a case of heat exhaustion. The cost of fire suppression efforts had reached almost $2 rail- lion by Sunday, said National Forest Service fire boss John Russell. Archbishop visits AIDS hospice UKIAM SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco Archbishop John R. Quinn visited an AIDS hospice and a Castro district church, where he celebrated a Mass that ended a vigil for the fatal disease. Quinn said his visit Sunday to the Most Holy Redeemer Church was "an effort to respond to the grief, the sadness, the fear, the hopelessness, the suffering" caused by AIDS. The Mass brought to an end pie church's "Forty Hours of Devotion in Response to AIDS," a vigil first held in 1985 and modeled on a vigil started in Milan in 1537 during an epidemic of the bubonic plague. "Simply because you might do something wrong, does not mean you are an intrinsically bad person," said Quinn, who reiterated that homosexual behavior, not homosexuality per se, violates the teachings of the church. "All of us do some good and bad things, 1 ' he said. Quinn did not go into details about Robert Arpin, a retired diocesan priest who last week said he is gay and has AIDS. But the archbishop said Arpin has not indicated how he contracted the disease, and he said he is not aware of any other local priests suffering from AIDS.
