Clairemont Mesa man shot during home invasion robbery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A thief Monday shot a Clairemont Mesa man while robbing him in the victim's apartment, along with three accomplices, authorities reported.

The 25-year-old resident made an emergency call shortly before 11:30 a.m. to report the holdup and gunfire in the 3700 block of Boyd Avenue, according to San Diego police.

Patrol personnel had to force entry to the residence to get to the victim, who had suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen, SDPD public-affairs Officer Ed Zwibel said. He described the bandits as teenage boys or young men and said they ran off following the shooting.

Medics took the wounded man to Sharp Memorial Hospital.

Police searched the area for the robbers by ground and aboard a patrol helicopter. There had been no arrests by early afternoon, Zwibel said.

It was unknown what, if anything, the thieves stole from the victim.
