SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An 18-year-old man was hospitalized in grave condition Tuesday following an assault on a Lincoln Park street, and homicide detectives were investigating, police said.
The man was found unconscious -- and with visible trauma to his body -- by his parents' home in the 4900 block of Palin Street shortly after 10:30 p.m. Monday, according to San Diego police homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney.
The parents went looking for their son after a citizen went to their home and told them that their son was lying in the street one block away, Rooney said.
Paramedics took the young man to a local trauma center, where he was placed on life support, according to the lieutenant.
Earlier in the day at about 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., a group of young males apparently confronted and fought with the teen, Rooney said, noting that the teen left his home sometime after 9 p.m.
Anyone with information about the assaults was asked to call homicide police at (619) 531-2293 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers' anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
