A 38-year-old man was hospitalized in critical condition Saturday morning with gunshot wounds suffered in a shooting in the parking lot of a restaurant in a strip mall in Kearny Mesa.
At 10 p.m. Friday, the man and a friend walked up to the door of the Min Sok Chon restaurant at 4620 Convoy Street and began talking with other customers when the conversation turned into an argument between the victim and one of the customers, according to Sgt. Michael Tansey of the San Diego Police Department.
The two men began fighting in the parking lot of the restaurant when another customer pulled a semi-automatic handgun and shot the victim four times, twice in the upper body and twice in the lower body, Tansey said.
The victim was rushed to a hospital where he underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition, he said.
The suspects ran southbound on Convoy Street. The shooter was described as an Asian man in his late 20s, 5 feet 6 inches tall with a thin to medium build, Tansey said. He was wearing a black ski cap, black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and black slippers.
SDPD Gang detectives are investigating.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident was asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
