Two arrested after shots fired at intersection

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — Two people were taken into custody Friday following a brawl at a South Bay intersection in which one person was shot, Chula Vista police said.

At approximately 10 a.m. on May 4, CVPD responded to reports of a shooting at the intersection of Olympic Parkway and Town Center Drive in Chula Vista.

Video obtained by FOX 5 shows that two men getting out of their vehicles began a physical fight, leading to one of the men being shot in the altercation.

Gillio Repetto, 19, was arrested Friday on charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, CVPD captain Phil Collum said. Serenity Nieblas, 19, who is believed to be the driver of the vehicle, was also arrested for allegedly aiding the escape from the shooting scene.

Police detectives searched the Bonita area on Friday to find the silver Hyundai shown in the video when they found the pair of suspects. Officers initiated a traffic stop and took both suspects into custody without incident, Collum said.

The weapon used in the shooting has not yet been located and, according to CVPD, there are currently no open suspects in the incident.

The man who was shot during the altercation was eventually taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries. It is currently unclear whether there is a relationship between the two parties involved.

Authorities did not immediately attribute the violence to “road rage” because it was initially unclear whether the men had a previous relationship. But it was one in a recent spate of violent clashes on local streets and highways, from an attack on a California Highway Patrol officer to a traffic rage shooting on Interstate 8 in Mission Valley.
