CHULA VISTA (CNS) - An investigation was underway Tuesday in Chula Vista, where a man in his 20s with ties to gang members was shot and wounded while in his car, police said.

Officers received reports of shots fired in the area of the 900 block of Melrose Avenue at 8:54 p.m. Monday, according to Chula Vista police Sgt. John Autolino.

Once there, officers found the victim suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound in his shoulder blade area, Autolino said in a statement.
