SAN DIEGO - San Diego police are searching for a man who shot four rounds into a car in which two church ministers were sitting, hitting one of them in the chest and arm.

Police responded to the shooting in the parking lot of the Greater Apostolic Faith Temple Church in Grant Hill around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

They said a man in his 20s walked up to the passenger side of the car and shot four rounds through the closed passenger window. One of the bullets grazed the passenger's chest and went into his arm.

The victim was taken to UCSD Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. Police recovered the suspect's gun at the scene.

He was last seen running from the parking lot.

Residents told Fox 5 they were in shock and couldn't believe anyone would target the church, which is known for feeding the hungry and distributing turkeys and other food during the holidays throughout the neighborhood.

"Two preachers got shot, It's crazy, come on that's scary! These are messengers from God, how can you do something like that?” said Martuan Williams, who lives near the church and heard the shots.
