    In a scene far too familiar on one corner in San Bernardino, police placed dozens of evidence markers at the intersection of Base Line Street and Waterman Avenue early Tuesday morning, after the neighborhood's second shooting in just two days.

    Four men and a woman were discovered early lying in and around a smoke shop around 11 p.m. Monday night. All had been shot, one of them fatally.

    He was identified as Orland Wayne Hunt, 24, of Banning.

    Police are searching for two men believed to have been the shooters who fled the scene. They also said some of the victims may have fired back.

    The intersection has seen about a several shootings in recent years, including one Monday night.

    "There was a bullet hole right here,” Daniel Alvarez, who recently moved to the area, said while pointing at his car.

    The night before, in the same spot, Alvarez was shot at while in his car.

    "Four actually hit my car,” he said. "Soon as I heard the first shot, I ducked." As he ducked, a bullet flew into the car, through his headrest, into his windshield. daniel had survived.

    Police say the two shootings in as many days may not be a coincidence.

    "It could be related. This location, this intersection has been a busy spot for our officers," said Lt. Rich Lawhead of the San Bernardino Police Department.

    Police have installed cameras at the intersection, and are hopeful they may have captured the incidents, something neighbors home is possible.

    Robert Wahlgren said he has lived in the area for a long time.

    “It’s gotten worse. (It) used to be a good city,” he said. “Used to be a real good town.”
