SAN DIEGO — A 27-year-old man was fatally shot and a 30-year-old man was wounded Sunday in an apparently unprovoked attack near the handball courts at Linda Vista Recreation Center in San Diego. The call came in just after 11 a.m.

A soccer tournament was taking place nearby.

First responders head to the 7000 Block of Levant Street. San Diego police said a man in his twenties was shot in the head, then pronounced dead at local hospital. His name was withheld pending notification of next of kin. 

While officers were at the hospital, a second victim was brought in by private vehicle. He said he was shot at the park, San Diego police Lt. Andra Brown said.

Witnesses told police that a male -- possibly Hispanic -- wearing a mask and shorts was seen running from the scene and getting into a white four- door vehicle that sped southbound on Linda Vista Road.

Anyone with information on these shootings was asked to call the SDPD's homicide unit at 619-531-2293. Tipsters can also call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. There have not been any arrests as of Sunday evening.
