The owner of the food truck said he was in the middle of making a taco order when he heard shots being fired.

“I was very, very scared," the owner, who wished to remain anonymous, said. "I did not know if they were going to keep shooting or not, so I laid on the floor and called 911.”

No injuries were reported.

A sergeant with SAPD confirmed to KSAT 12 that two men admitted to firing several rounds. The suspects’ charges are pending.

Police are still investigating what led to the shooting.
