Detectives say an off-duty California Highway Patrol officer was following a man he believed to be a suspected drunk driver. Police say the CHP officer fired shots when he thought the man was armed.
ABC30 talked to neighbors who didn't want to be identified on camera, they described the moments after shots were fired.
"I stayed away from the window, I just felt very lucky to be alive."
