SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men were hospitalized Monday with multiple gunshot wounds following an apparent gang-related attack in the backyard of a Fairmount home, police said.
The men, ages 21 and 27, were shot in the 3800 block of 47th St. around 9 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.
They were in the backyard when two other males appeared armed with shotguns and fired several rounds, striking both victims multiple times in their backs and upper torsos, Stafford said in a statement. Medics took the victims to an area hospital with nonlife threatening wounds, he said.
The shooters fled on foot. Police described one of them as a thin, bald Hispanic man, 16-20 years old and around 5 feet 8, last seen wearing a gray jacket and blue jeans. A description of the second shooter was not immediately available, Stafford said.
Gang detectives were investigating.
