SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men with former gang associations in the San Diego area are believed to be involved in a shooting five days ago in Murrieta, and detectives said they fear the suspect has left the region.
Alfred Wakefield, 26, of Murrieta, allegedly shot his estranged wife's male acquaintance last Tuesday in the 28200 block of Via Princessa in Murrieta.
Responding deputies found the wounded man waiting for them inside his SUV at the USA gas station several blocks away at Winchester and Murrieta Hot Springs Road.
The man, whose name has not been released, had one gunshot wound on his shoulder and a superficial wound to his head. He was taken to Inland Valley Hospital where he was treated and then released the following day.
Investigators believe Wakefield became angry when he saw the victim pick up his wife after she left their home and fired several shots at the victim's SUV as he drove away.
Investigators said the victim and Wakefield knew each other and have prior gang affiliations in the San Diego area.
Detectives asked anyone with information to call Detective Victor Carrillo at (95) 461-6311.
