Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man was shot in the toe by a gunman with a group that confronted him in his driveway in Mira Mesa, a San Diego police watch commander said Friday.

The shooting was reported at 10:56 p.m. Thursday in the 7800 block of Bacadi Drive, south of Mira Mesa Boulevard, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

A man, a woman and a 3-year-old boy were standing in their driveway when a silver sport utility vehicle drove up, Stafford said. The watch commander believed the man, woman and child were related, but as of 2 a.m., he could not confirm they were related.

Three males in the vehicle issued a gang challenge, and one of the males in the back seat "fired three rounds from a handgun at the victims," Stafford said.

One of the rounds struck the man in the big toe. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment, Stafford said.

A San Diego police Gang Unit was investigating.
