Officers were dispatched to a "Shot Spotter" activation on Josephine Street.  Upon arrival officers found a vehicle with bullet holes in it in front of a residence and casings nearby. The victim saw the officers outside looking at the bullet holes in his car and collecting the casings.  The victim was sitting in his vehicle when a tan Honda occupied by four people drove up. The rear left passenger of the Honda fired 3 rounds from a handgun at the victim.  The victim, who was armed with a legally possessed firearm and while protecting himself, returned fire.   Several minutes later officers were informed that two shooting victims arrived at Natividad Medical Center for treatment.  Both of these individuals sustained non-life threatening gun shot wounds.  It is believed that they had been occupants of the tan Honda.  Both of these individuals were unwilling to cooperate with the investigation.  The original victim was unable to identify the individuals.  The investigation is continuing.
