The shooting occurred in an alley off National Avenue near South 29th Street shortly before 10:30 p.m. Thursday after “some type of altercation involving the victim and an unknown number of suspects,” San Diego police Lt. Paul Rorrison said.
Officers arrived to find the victim lying in the alley suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper torso, Rorrison said.
The victim, whose name was not immediately available, was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he later died, according to the lieutenant.
Rorrison said a description of the shooter and others who might have been there was unavailable this morning.
Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to call the San Diego Police Department Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2425 or San Diego Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
