SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - New video reveals clues into a shootout that shook up a neighborhood in Clairemont Friday morning.

At Broadlawn Street and Batista Street, the quiet was shattered just past 10 a.m., leaving neighbors like Julia Mauriello dumbfounded.

"I heard a loud series of sounds I was not familiar with. I came out to find there was a gun battle on my street," said Mauriello.

That morning, San Diego Police evidence markers revealed the location of the spent rounds. There were few clues about what happened, until now.

A neighbor's Ring video obtained by 10News shows that in the 50 seconds before the shooting, a speeding black truck turns onto the street past a dark green sedan, which then begins to move.

In the next video, the truck is stopped on the street. Not far away, someone emerges from the passenger side of the car and starts firing. After about six shots exchanged, the person gets back in the car. The car backs up and peels out.

Another surveillance camera shows the truck racing out of the area, before returning, possibly to survey the damage.

"So scary. This happened in front of my home. All of my children were on my lawn just an hour before the shots. This street is full of families," said Mauriello.

If you have any information on either vehicle, call San Diego Police at 619-531-2000.
