An investigation was launched in the South Bay after a round of late Monday-night gunfire, which included bullets fired at cars and a video that showed a suspect shooting at an unknown male victim, who ran away and hasn't been found.

Shell casings were found along Richmond Avenue and Scott Street in San Jose, which is about a mile from City College, and at about 10:30 p.m., Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies were searching the area.

In a press release on Tuesday, the sheriff said that video from a nearby home showed that a black, four-door sedan driving southbound from the scene shows a man exiting the car and chasing a victim out of camera range.

The video also shows the suspect shooting at the victim, the sheriff said. The suspect ran away from the scene and the victim ran away into a back yard but is still missing.

KTVU saw that two people were being detained, but there was no immediate word on those circumstances.

One woman told KTVU that her parents' car now has a bullet hole in the back bumper. Her mother opened the back gate and saw a man hiding behind their car saying someone was trying to kill him and that a person then tried to jump a fence.

Another neighbor told KTVU that hearing gunfire in the neighborhood is not all that surprising.

"I don't know what happened, but it's kind of unnerving living seven houses away from a shooting," said Gary Burns. He said there's been two shootings in two years.

And Adrian Alcaraz said that the ordeal was "pretty unnerving." 

This shooting comes on the heels of a quadruple murder-suicide in San Jose, reported late Sunday night. The two are unrelated as police said that tragedy was an isolated event.
