Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 26-year-old man who was shot in the back while walking in San Diego's Paradise Hills neighborhood was hospitalized Monday but was expected to survive, police said.

The shooting on Saipan Dr. near Potomac St. was reported just before 7 p.m. Sunday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The victim walked several blocks to his girlfriend's house and she drove him to Paradise Valley Hospital in National City, the officer said in a statement.

From there, medics took the wounded man to Scripps Mercy Hospital, Stafford said, describing the wound as not life-threatening.

Police were looking for a Hispanic man, 30-35 years old, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 7 and 185-200 pounds, with tattoos on his arms and a tattoo of a woman's face on his neck. He wore a white shirt with shorts and fled northbound from the shooting in a small blue Dodge 1500 pickup with two female passengers, Stafford said.

Gang detectives were investigating.
