SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (KGTV) - Police are trying to determine if the gun in the officer-involved shooting was registered to the shooter.

Around 1:30 Wednesday, police were called to a mobile home park in San Ysidro after getting reports of a man carrying a large gun.

When they arrived, they ordered the man on the ground, and when he didn’t get down or put his gun down, they shot him several times.

10News was back on the scene today where neighbors told stories of what happened.

One woman said she saw the man with the gun on his shoulder. She said he was saying he had already shot his woman. No women were injured in the incident.

Before police killed him, he shot an RV with five children inside leaving bullet holes on the front. Neighbors say luckily no one was killed.

One neighbor reported getting under her table during the gunfire.

The name of the man police shot and killed hasn’t been released. 10News talked to his sons today. One of them said they didn’t want to talk about their dad, but that their mom was doing okay and they are not mad at police for shooting their father.

Police say they’re working with ATF agents to trace the gun which is a lengthy process.
