SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police Friday investigated a shooting that left a man dead in the Logan Heights section of San Diego.
Officers responded around 8:15 p.m. Thursday to a report of a shooting in the 100 block of 33rd Street and found the victim, who had sustained at least one gunshot wound, down in the front yard of a residence on the east side of the street, said Lt. Jorge Duran of the San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit.
Paramedics were unable to save the man, whose age was not disclosed, and he was pronounced dead at the scene, Duran said.
