No one was hurt but Sgt. Sidhu says one of the people in the SUV is known to police and has some connection to gang activity.

He says officers are now looking for a red sports car with a red spoiler.

Someone in the sports car opened fire on the moving SUV as both vehicles were driving in the 9200 block of 114 Street.
