SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — San Jose police were investigating gang-related shooting that took place on a residential street Sunday evening.

Police responded to reports that around 6:30 p.m. several known gang members had fired shots at the house of opposing gang members in the 500 block of Skall Drive.

Police said that following the initial shots, those inside the house responded with their own gunfire.

No injuries were reported, but all people reported to be involved fled before officers arrived, police said.

The violence came less than a week after San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Police Chief Chris Moore, city council members, community leaders, residents, and victims of recent gang violence gathered at a City Hall prayer vigil and protest aimed at combating gang violence last week.

At that gathering in the City Hall courtyard, protestors held signs that said, “enough is enough,” and “stop violence” and chanted “no more bloodshed, no more tears.”

The evening vigil followed a string of violent crimes, including eight violent deaths in the weeks leading up to the vigil.
