NATIONAL CITY, Calif. (KGTV) — Two shooters are at large after firing at each other near 14th Street and Island Avenue in East Village Sunday evening, according to San Diego Police.

SDPD said one of the shooters was behind the wheel of a silver Mercury and the other was driving a white Impala. The driver of the mercury drove off after firing shots and the driver of the Impala fled on foot leaving behind a passenger, according to SDPD.

Officers said the passenger of the Impala then took the wheel. The Impala was found a few miles away in National City and the passenger was ultimately arrested and charged with felony possession of a handgun, according to SDPD.

"It just makes me feel so unsafe," said Kate Barnes. "I like fell to the ground immediately and started trying to hide behind something over there."

Barnes witnessed the shooting and said she heard multiple rounds.

SDPD said it recovered a 9mm gun inside the white Impala.

"It honestly upsets me. It's beautiful San Diego. Everybody wants to live here. It's amazing but just the crime that's going around here is just not ok and it needs to stop. I wish everyone would get along honestly," said Barnes.
