Man shot while taking out the trash in City Heights

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A man in his 20s was shot twice in his upper body in San Diego's Fairmont Village neighborhood early Friday, but neither wound appears to be life-threatening, police said.

The shooting in the east alley of the 4100 block of 46th Street was reported at 1:25 a.m., according to San Diego police Sgt. Brad O'Donnell.

The man told investigators he was taking out the trash when a gunman walked up and fired three to five rounds, two of which struck the victim, O'Donnell said in a statement. A couple of bullets hit the victim in the right bicep and the upper left part of his chest.

There may be two suspects that got away in a green-colored Honda or Hyundai 4-door car.

“There was some type of confrontation between the black male victim and one or possibly two other black males,” explained Lt. Steve Shaw. “We found two different shell casings with two different caliber guns we're looking into if it's a gang nexus.”

Paramedics took the victim to the hospital, the sergeant said, adding that he was expected to survive.

One of the suspects is described as a black male in his 20s, wearing a grey hoodie and dark pants, medium height and medium build.

The motive for the shooting was under investigation.
