One person has died in a shooting involving a member of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Chula Vista officials said.
The shooting happened in the middle of the street around 1 p.m. Friday in a residential area.
One person was killed in the shooting and a dark-colored Honda Accord with bullet holes in the windshield was parked on Moss Street near Oaklawn Avenue.
Residents said they saw medics performing CPR on a woman in the street and then watched as the medics covered the woman with a tarp.
Chula Vista police Capt. Gary Wedge confirmed a CBP employee was involved in the shooting but did not have further details.
Hector Salazar was reading his mail in the home just a few feet away from the incident.
"I just saw an agent with a gun walking toward the car and yelling. But the person inside didn't respond," he said.
Two people living about a block from the scene of the shooting say they heard about five or six shots. Other residents recalled as many as eight rounds.
Marco Garcia lives on another corner of the intersection at Moss and Oaklawn. He was in the kitchen when he heard the shots and immediately told his mother to get on the ground.
When he looked out the window, he saw that the person in the dark green Honda Accord was not moving.
"I saw her arm hanging out of the side of the car" he said.
Garcia said he's seen the car in the neighborhood but did not recognize the suspect.
Several U.S. Border Patrol vehicles arrived after the shooting was reported and the scene was cordoned off with crime scene tape.
Chula Vista police officers were on scene as well as Chief David Bejarano.
One woman told NBC 7 San Diego that she ran out of her house, afraid one of the many children in neighborhood may have been hurt.
A large apartment complex is located where the shooting happened and there are rows of older homes along the other side of the street located just east of Interstate 5 south of L Street.
