At least 17 shots were fired during a rolling gun battle between two vehicles Thursday evening on Beacon Avenue near Jefferson Park, sending a family of bicyclists running for cover and damaging cars parked along the street, police said.

Witnesses reported seeing the two vehicles–a cream-colored Ford Bronco and a gold Honda–rolling south on Beacon Avenue, exchanging gunfire as they passed the Jefferson Golf Course at around 8 p.m.

No one was injured in the shooting, but two vehicles parked on the street were struck by gunfire.

A family riding their bicycles on Beacon Avenue also had to run for cover to avoid being hit by bullets during the shootout.

Gang unit detectives responded to the scene, talked to witnesses and gathered evidence.

Investigators are still working to identify the suspected shooters.
