Police are searching for a drive-by gunman who opened fire on officers as they responded to the shooting of a woman early Thursday near Chicano Park.

Just after 1 a.m., a 19-year-old woman was shot in the arm while being dropped off in the 1900 block of National Avenue, according to San Diego police. The gunman is believed to have been in a gray sedan along with two other men when he opened fire.

No officers were injured in the shooting, authorities said.
