Police said around 5:30 p.m. Thursday, an unknown number of suspects in a gold Cadillac began spraying bullets at a group of seven to 10 men at a strip center on Dashwood near Rampart.
The area is known for gang activity.
The victims are all expected to recover, but people who live and work in the area said they are fed up with the criminal activity.
Louis Nueva-Guevara, 28, and his son, 3-year-old Mateo, were sitting in the car and another sibling at a tire shop when he was hit. They were innocent bystanders, caught in what locals say is an on-going problem.
In exclusive surveillance video, you can see when the shots were fired. The video captured the gold Cadillac drive by a group of people and then everyone hits the ground. The car circles back, comes up Rampart Street, and starts firing again.
Someone in the attacked crowd shot back.
