The shooting victim’s girlfriend was not injured, the San Diego Police Department reported.
The pair were walking down an alley in the 5700 block of Montezuma Place at about 2:35 a.m. when they were confronted by a group of individuals.
One of the people — described as a Black male wearing a red-hooded sweatshirt — pulled out a handgun and began shooting.
