A pedestrian who was shot in the leg in Encanto showed up at a hospital about an hour later and was not cooperating with San Diego Police, officials said Monday.
Officers were called to Paradise Valley Hospital at about 10 p.m. Sunday night to investigate a victim who had just arrived with a gunshot wound to his left leg, according to Sgt. Jordan Wells.
The victim was somewhat uncooperative with officers but said he was walking in the area of Brooklyn Avenue and 64th Street when he was shot. He provided no description of the suspect, Wells said.
A review of recent radio calls of gunshots in that area indicated that there was a possible related call at about 9 p.m. Officers checked the area and discovered a possible shooting scene in the 600 block of 64th Street.
No witnesses to the shooting were found.
The victim, whose name was not released by police, was taken to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest for treatment with non-life threatening injuries according to Wells.
