CHULA VISTA (CNS) - A man checked himself into a hospital early Saturday after he was shot in Chula Vista, and police are searching for the suspect in the shooting.

Police received multiple 911 calls around 12:50 this morning regarding shots being fired in the 300 block of Mankato St., a Chula Vista Police Department officer said.

When officers arrived at the scene they found a crime scene but did not find a victim or suspect, the officer said. Shortly thereafter, a nearby hospital reported that a victim with several non-life threatening gunshot wounds had arrived in the emergency room.

The victim was transported to a local trauma center where he underwent surgery and is recovering from his wounds, the officer said.

Police detectives interviewed the victim and officers are on the lookout for the suspect, described as a Hispanic male, about 20 years old with a medium build and wearing a red and gray sweatshirt.
