Following the shooting that took place Monday night in the wooded area near Moraga and Canyon, law enforcement officials believed it was the result of people protecting an illegal marijuana grow in the hills.

After authorities searched for the shooting suspects Monday night, they spent Tuesday searching for the marijuana grow they believed the shooters were protecting.

East Bay Regional Park District police Capt. Mark Ruppenthal called the search off shortly after it begun, saying that more planning and more involvement from law enforcement agencies would be required for a successful search of the terrain.
