A series of three freeway shootings in San Diego County on Monday left one person shot in the leg, authorities said. An ambulance was shot at in one of the incidents.

Authorities are searching for two people traveling in a white Chevrolet Malibu, with a possible vehicle license of 5POM917. The suspects are considered armed and dangerous and motorists are asked to avoid contact.

In the first incident, two suspects traveling in a Malibu shot at a motorist on northbound Interstate 805 in National City at about 10:43 a.m., authorities said. No one was hit.

The suspects then apparently shot an individual in the leg on I-805 near Mesa College at about 10:49 a.m., authorities said, describing the wound as not life-threatening.

In the third incident, at about 10:56 a.m., an ambulance was shot at but not hit on northbound Interstate 5 near Del Mar.
