SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police are searching for a man involved in a deadly shooting in National City.

Police officers dispatched to the Rincon Del Mar restaurant in the 300 block of Highland Avenue near East Division Street shortly after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday found the victim on a sidewalk suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, according to National City police.

Police say a group of men were fighting outside the restaurant when one pulled out a gun and started shooting. One man was hit, and he later died at UCSD Medical Center.

Police are still trying to figure out what sparked the incident.

"We don't have anybody in custody and no motive other than we know there was some type of fight,” said Lt. Keith Fifield with the National City Police Department.

About 30 people were watching the World Cup inside the restaurant when the fight broke out. Authorities said the suspect escaped following the shooting. A suspect description was not immediately available.

Police have questioned several witnesses.

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification.

Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to call police at (619) 336-4411, ext. 0.
