A shooting in a Grantville-area neighborhood left an unidentified man fatally wounded in the parking lot of a Kaiser Permanente building Monday.

Patrol officers responding to a report of gunfire shortly before 6 a.m. found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his chest in the 10900 block of San Diego Mission Road, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Paramedics took the man, who appeared to be in his late 30s to mid-40s, to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
