El Cajon police search for shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - El Cajon police sought Thursday the gunman who fatally wounded a man outside an apartment complex.

Police officers sent to investigate after someone reported a possible shooting at the Tierra del Sol Apartments on Peach Avenue near North Mollison Avenue around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday found the victim on the ground in the parking lot, according to El Cajon police Lt. Frank La Haye. He was rushed to a hospital, but later died.

His name was withheld pending family notification. Police said he was around 40.

Witnesses told investigators the victim and another man were arguing in the parking lot just before the shooting, and the gunman fled on foot afterward. La Haye said a subsequent search of the area did not turn up the suspect.

Police described the suspect as a heavyset black man dressed in dark clothing.

Anyone with additional information on the shooting was asked to call police at (619) 579-3311, or the Crime Stoppers tip line at (888) 580-8477.
