SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Two people were hospitalized after being shot in the Logan Heights area early Wednesday morning.

At around 3:30 a.m., San Diego Police officers were called to an area near Dewey Street and Kearney Mesa Avenue in response to a report of gunfire.

SDPD officials said the victims -- a 37-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman -- were sleeping inside a silver Nissan Altima when three males approached the vehicle.

According to police, the three males “wanted in the vehicle to sleep and an altercation erupted.” Police said one of the suspects pulled out a gun and fired four shots into the car.

The trio then fled the scene on foot.

ABC 10News learned the victims were able to drive themselves to a nearby church and called 911.

Officers arrived to find the man with a wound to his arm and the woman suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. The victims were transported to UC San Diego Medical Center with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.

Police searched the area but could not locate the group involved in the incident.
