He came looking for you. - Two actions (coming and looking for you) were simultaneous.
I think two actions seem highly unlikely, what does the next sentence mean?
Two actions (coming and looking for you) were simultaneous.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Maybe wowenglish1's problem is that he or she does not understand that come looking for is an idiom. It has nothing to do with simultaneous actions. He came looking for you is often menacing. It could well mean he was hoping to find you in order to hurt you. Or it could simply mean that he came hoping to find you for some other reason. But it is an idiom, at least in AmE.
