Two Spring Valley men were recovering Wednesday from wounds they suffered in a shooting at the apartment complex where they live, authorities reported.

The victims were in a driveway at the complex in the 3600 block of South Bonita Street when a man dressed in dark clothing walked up and opened fire on them at about 5:45 p.m. Tuesday, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The shooter then fled in an unknown direction, Sgt. Mike Hettinger said.

One of the victims was hospitalized for gunshot wounds that were not believed to be life-threatening, and the other was treated for a graze wound.

The assailant remained at large and unidentified Wednesday, and the motive for the shooting was unknown.

“Right now there’s really not any workable leads,” the sergeant said in the early afternoon.
