SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Homicide detectives Tuesday were investigating the shooting death of a 24-year-old man in Skyline.
The man was standing in the 600 block of Chester Street about 2 p.m. Monday when a 1990s burgundy-colored Cadillac with chrome rims slowed near him, according to San Diego police homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney.
The car's occupants and the pedestrian exchanged a few words, and then the pedestrian was shot by a passenger in the car, Rooney said, noting that the car was last seen headed westbound in the 6900 block of Lisbon Street.
Medics took the wounded man to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest, where he died just before 6 p.m.
His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
