A shooting near Chicano Park left a teenage pedestrian badly wounded Monday, authorities reported.

The gunfire was reported shortly after 11:30 a.m. in the area of Kearney Avenue and Sampson Street in Logan Heights, according to San Diego police.

Three young men were walking along when a dark-colored sedan passed them and rolled to a stop nearby, according to San Diego police.

A passenger then got out of the car and, without saying anything, fired several shots at the group, wounding a 17-year-old boy in the side, Officer Robert Heims said.

Medics took the victim, described only as male, to UCSD Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, but was said to be in stable condition, police said.

The shooter, a Latino who appeared to be in his early 20s, then got back into the vehicle, which was driven away to the north.
