Homicide detectives sought Friday to determine what led to a late-night shooting that left an unidentified man dead in a home near Chicano Park.

The deadly gunfire a block from the Coronado Bridge in Barrio Logan was reported shortly after 11:30 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego Police.

Officers arrived to find a man who appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s mortally wounded in a bathroom at a home in the 2100 block of National Avenue, Lt. Andra Brown said. Paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Witnesses told investigators the man was shot after forcing his way into the house during an argument with another man.

“It is unknown at this time if the (intruder) was known to the residents of the home,” the lieutenant said Friday morning.

It also remains unclear who fired the fatal shots, according to Brown.
