SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A couple driving through San Diego on Interstate 805 pulled over in North Park Monday morning to find bullet holes in their truck.

The man was driving on the freeway near I-905 in south San Diego County when he noticed the steering wheel start to shake, the California Highway Patrol said.

When the man pulled over, he found his tire had been shot, and there were two bullet holes in his door and driver’s seat.

CHP officers said the man changed his tired on the freeway and pulled over at a Chevron at 3359 University Ave, where he called 911.

A search of the truck turned up at least one of the slugs, officers said.

The husband and wife, who were heading home to Fresno from Mexico, were not hurt. The bullets came within inches of hitting them.

CHP investigators did not announce whether their investigation determined the shots were fired in Mexico or on the freeway.
