NATIONAL CITY, Calif. -- Two people showed up at a South Bay gas station with gunshot wounds early Tuesday, leaving investigators trying to figure out what led up to the attack.

Police said a man and a woman walked into the Shell gas station on National City Boulevard, just north of state Route 54, around 3 a.m. with gunshot wounds to their legs.

They asked the cashier to call for help, and paramedics arrived to take the victims to the hospital.

What led up to the shooting and where it took place wasn't immediately clear, and National City police said the wounded man and woman were not cooperating with investigators.

Investigators eventually found a blood trail leading to a nearby mobile home park and believe the shooting likely took place there.

Officers also found a stolen car at the gas station and were trying to determine if it had any connection to the attack.

Both victims were expected to survive their wounds.
