    I heard a shooting around 13th Ave and Escondido Blvd around 9pm. At first, I heard like someone breaking glasses as if someone broken into a house and then after more than 10 gun shots. I try to look out the window but it was too dark, 5 mins later I just heard police sirens. For awhile the dogs bark until close to 11pm.

    Other news reports say no one was found at the scene and the two wounded men arrived at the hospital on their own. Please clarify Fox 5.
