SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - An investigation was underway Monday into a drive-by shooting that left a man and a bystander injured in the Lincoln Park area.
The apparent target of the shooting, a 33-year-old man, had just sat down on a bus stop bench after leaving a mini-mart at the corner of South 47th Street and Logan Avenue when someone inside a passing white SUV opened fire around 9:15 p.m. Sunday, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.
He was struck twice in the leg and once in the chest. A woman who had also been waiting for the bus was hit once in her calf, according to the officer. Both were taken to a hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries, Buttle said.
When asked if this was gang-related, police officers said there was a gang unit on scene Sunday night, but they wouldn’t say why.
Police said there is isn’t a suspect description yet, but they are looking for a white SUV.
