Police were investigating Thursday after an Ocean View Hills resident suffered gunshot wounds in a late-night fight outside his home near the Otay River.

As the man, 21, exited his vehicle at a residential complex in the 200 block of Amber Ridge Place, two pedestrians wearing black ski masks approached and confronted him at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday, according to the San Diego Police Department.

During an ensuing fight, the resident was shot in his left forearm and right thigh, SDPD Officer David O’Brien said.

Following the gunfire, the two pedestrians, described only as males, fled on foot.

By the time officers responded to reports about the shooting, the victim had left. Police later learned he went to Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center to be treated for non-life-threatening wounds, O’Brien said.

The reason for the fight was unclear. It was unknown if the victim was acquainted with the two other combatants.
