Man Trips, Drops Gun Which Fires Accidentally in Mission Valley Costco Parking Lot: SDPD

Police are actively looking for two men after they say at least one shot was fired in the Costco parking lot in Mission Valley Tuesday night. 

A security guard called the police to report shots fired, according to the San Diego Police Department. 

A man appears to have been carrying a gun in his hand, a bag in the other, when he tripped and it accidentally went off, police said.

It's not yet clear whether the bullet struck him.

Moments later, another man--with a ponytail, driving a white Chevy Tahoe or Suburban--helped the man collect what fell out of the bag before they drove off together, according to police.

SDPD officers are actively searching for the suspects because a gun went off in public, posing a safety threat. 

No customers at Costco were injured and police say it doesn't appear the man entered the store.

No other information was immediately available.
