The California Highway Patrol sought Monday a motorist suspected in a car-to-car shooting on a freeway transition ramp near City Heights.

The victim told investigators someone opened fire from inside a silver Toyota Camry on the transition from northbound Interstate 805 to northbound Interstate 15 shortly after 11:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the CHP. It was unclear how many people were in the car.

No one in the victim's Dodge Stratus was injured, CHP officials said.

The father of the target told 10News that his son was in his security guard uniform and headed to work.

Clifford Grayson said, "The car pulled up beside him and started shooting ... Survival instinct kicked in, while driving; 'Hey, somebody's shooting at me.' He said he ducked down a little bit and focused on getting the car off the freeway without wrecking it and at the same time, dodging bullets."

Grayson voiced gratitude, adding, "Again, thank God, we could've been waking up to, 'Hey, your son's dead' ... but he's alive."
