SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Video captured shots ringing out, apparently pelting cars in a Rolando neighborhood, including the vehicles of a family already impacted by the pandemic.

A shattered windshield is what Ondria Aviles found when she went to her Dodge Journey, parked outside her home along Marraco Drive on Monday night.

"Just couldn't believe that had happened," said Aviles.

Her husband came out and found the driver side window of his truck - also parked on the street - was also shattered.

"My husband had a BB pellet hole in his window," said Aviles.

Turns the moments their vehicles were vandalized were captured by neighbor Ryan Dick's surveillance camera. Just before 7:30 that night, a red sedan was recorded driving through when three shots rang out in a span of three seconds. The final two shots sounded near Aviles' vehicles.

According to posts on the Nextdoor app, at least four other cars and homes were struck in a several-mile stretch.

"Couldn't imagine if they missed and hit someone, a young child. We have three kids," said Aviles.

Along with her outrage, there is frustration. The bill for the window damage will be a hardship. Because of the pandemic, she's been furloughed for several months. Her husband's work hours reduced.

"This is the worst time this could happen, in our current situation," said Aviles.

That mystery car is believed to be a maroon Lexus IS. Anyone with information in the case is asked to call San Diego Police at 619-531-2000.
