A 21-year-old man smoking outside a Bay Terraces apartment complex was struck in the foot by an apparent stray bullet on Wednesday morning.
The victim was smoking outside just after 2 a.m. in the 2800 block of Casey Street when he heard gunshots, San Diego Police officer John Buttle said.
“He looked around and didn’t see anyone but felt a burning sensation in his foot,” the officer said. “The victim realized he had been shot (and) ran to a family member’s house who transported the victim to a hospital.”
The man’s injury was not considered life-threatening, Buttle said. Detectives were sent to the neighborhood to investigate the shooting.
