A man in his 20s was found dying from a gunshot wound following a fight just after sunrise Saturday in the Webster neighborhood.

Police were summoned to a report of a person down around 6:30 a.m. in the 4500 block of Federal Boulevard, east of Interstate 805, San Diego police Lt. Mike Hastings said.

Officers and medical personnel found the man, who died at the scene, despite resuscitation efforts.

His name was withheld pending family notification.

Hastings said the preliminary investigation revealed that a fight had been heard in the area earlier in the morning, along with at least one gunshot. Two men were seen speeding away in a gray four-door car, he said.

Hastings asked anyone with information related to the shooting to call police at (619) 531-2293, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-6477.
