SAN DIEGO (CNS) – CHP officers and sheriff’s deputies were searching Saturday for four men who fled their vehicle on state Route 54 after a shot was fired at another vehicle, authorities said.

The shooting happened at 2:22 p.m. Saturday on westbound SR-54 at Reo Drive, according to a CHP incident log.
