One man died and another was wounded in a shooting in the Mt. Hope neighborhood late Saturday afternoon.

Multiple calls came in to police around 5:11 p.m. reporting a shooting near the intersection of 42nd and Market Streets, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Police arriving on the scene found a 32-year old man and a 37-year man lying on the ground with gunshot wounds. Officers provided emergency medical aid, but the younger victim later died at a hospital.

Police said a preliminary investigation indicated that two men were in a vehicle when they were shot. The suspect is a black male driving a white 4-door truck.

Both victims have been identified but police are withholding their identities pending family notification.
