SAN DIEGO -- Police are searching for two women after they opened fire near the FamMart clothing store in Oak Park late Saturday morning.

Officers were sent to the 1700 block of Euclid Avenue after reports of a fight that ended in gunfire at around 10:30 a.m.

Two women in a Chevrolet Impala arrived at the rear parking lot of FamMart and got into an argument with two men who own a barbershop inside the clothing store, according to San Diego Police Sgt. Thomas Sullivan.

One of the women allegedly fired three rounds toward the men, but did not hit either of them. She went back to the Impala and tossed her gun to the other woman, who fired off another two shots at the men, Sullivan said.

Police described one of the suspects as an African-American female wearing a black shirt, bandanna and white pants. Both women fled the scene.

Responding officers found their Impala a short distance away, Sullivan said. After several calls and no response from the car, police broke the windows with a pepperball gun and found that it was empty. Officers did recover a gun from the car.

Police said that the suspects are still on the run and face several charges, including assault with a deadly weapon and possibly attempted murder.

Anyone with information was encouraged to contact police.
