SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An 18-year-old man was shot Saturday morning after he tried to intervene to stop another man from beating a woman on a street in the Alta Vista neighborhood, and police were searching for the gunman.
The incident near the intersection of Beverly Street and Geneva Avenue began just after 2 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.
The man left a party with his girlfriend when he spotted another man beating a woman, Heims said. The 18-year-old intervened to stop the beating and a fight started with the assailant.
The suspect then pulled out a gun and shot the samaritan once in the leg, Heims said. The wound was not-life-threatening and the victim took himself to a hospital. There's no word on the condition of the woman who was being beaten.
The suspect fled on foot running west on Euclid Avenue.
He was described as a Hispanic or white man about 21-years-old. He stood about 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighed about 150 pounds.
