SAN BERNARDINO ( —  San Bernardino firefighters had to leap into action Friday morning as six shots rang out.

KCAL9’s Cristy Fajardo reports at least two of those shots actually struck the firehouse.

“Yeah, it was a little close,” said San Bernardino firefighter Robert Docis.

He is used to rushing into to danger but Friday morning danger came to their front door in the 2600 block of North E. Street.

Docis showed Fajardo the two bullet holes.

Fortunately, the building is bullet-resistant.

“It did stop at the stucco which is nice,” Docis says.

Good thing because he and his partner were sitting on the other side of the window just feet away from where billets ricocheted.

“Two of us were in there and we both jumped to the ground, and crawled to the farther end of the station,” he said.

Seconds later they would hear a cry for help.

A gunshot victim had jumped the fence and made his way to the back door of the station.

“I grabbed him by the arm that was not shot and did not have a bullet wound pnd drug him threw the bay door,” Docis.

The victim is expected to survive.

And firefighters would soon learn what they heard was a drive-by

“I heard pop pop pop,  six gunshots,” said firehouse neighbor Jill Robbins. “I knew right away, they were not fireworks and they were gunshots. And then I heard a car take off.”

Throughout the city there have been threats of injuring a firefighter — so personnel initially believed they might have been target.
