SAN DIEGO — A fatal shooting in National City killed one man and put another in the hospital, according to police.
It happened just after 2 a.m. Monday in the 2100 block of Grove Street, just east of Interstate 805.
Police found the victim, who appeared to be in his 30s, dead in the street. The other victim was found a block away with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Detectives say they are investigating whether this was a random drive-by shooting or if the victims were targeted.
“Our officers came out to this area and they located a male, roughly to be around 30 years of age, at the corner of E. 22nd and Grove. Medics arrived on scene and attempted to resuscitate the male but he died at the scene,” said National City Police Captain Alex Hernandez.
The identities of the two victims have not be disclosed and no arrests have been made.
Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call the National City Police Department at 619-336-4411.
Homicide detectives shut down Grove Street in both directions during the investigation.
