Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police Friday were investigating a gang-related shooting that left a male with a leg wound in San Diego's Teralta East neighborhood.

The victim was leaving a friend's house in the 4000 block of Menlo Avenue around 11:25 p.m. Thursday when three men approached on foot and issued "a gang challenge," said San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The male ran from the trio, but one of the gang members fired five to six rounds at him, striking him once in a leg, Stafford said.

The victim was taken to a hospital. Police did not immediately say if he is believed to have gang affiliations.

The gunman, who wore a gray hoodie, is described as black, in his 30s, 5 feet 10 inches and 170 pounds.

The San Diego Police Department's Gang Unit is investigating the shooting.
