SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man fatally shot on a Mount Hope street by a gunman in a stolen sport utility vehicle was identified Wednesday.
Wydell Littleton, 52, was walking in the 4100 block of F Street about 11 a.m. Tuesday when he walked up to a white SUV stopped in the road, according to San Diego police Lt. Ernie Herbert. As Littleton neared the driver's side window, he was fatally shot, he said.
A motive for the shooting was unknown. No arrests had been made by about 2 p.m.
A few minutes after the fatal shooting, police received reports of a wreck in Otay Mesa involving a vehicle fitting the description of the one the gunman was driving, Herbert said. The SUV, which had been reported stolen in San Diego, had careened off a connector ramp from Interstate 805 to Palm Avenue, but the driver had fled.
The suspected killer was described as a thin black man in his 20s, with short, braided hair and dark clothing.
Littleton, reportedly from Detroit, was known in the area from going door-to-door, looking for odd jobs.
