ESCONDIDO (CNS) - An investigation was underway Monday following the shooting death of a man in his late 20s in Escondido.
Officers received multiple reports that someone had been shot in the area of 800 East Mission Avenue just before 9 p.m. Sunday, according to Escondido police Lt. Mike Loarie.
Once there, officers found a man in his late 20s on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound in his torso, Loarie said in a statement. The man was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died around 9:30 p.m., the lieutenant said.
"The motive for the shooting is not yet clear," Loarie said, adding that detectives are conducting an investigation.
