A man was hospitalized Friday morning in unknown condition after being shot in front of a home in San Marcos.

Deputies responded about 10:50 p.m. Thursday to the 3800 block of La Rosa Drive after a witness called to report hearing a heated argument outside her home, followed by gunshots, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The caller said her nephew had been shot and a relative took him to a hospital, the department said.

A description of the suspect was not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call the sheriff’s department at 858-565-5200.
