SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A man shot in the head in a Clairemont neighborhood Wednesday night died in the hospital, police told 10News.
At around 7 p.m., San Diego police received reports of a shooting in the 4600 block of Sauk Avenue, near Genesee Avenue. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man lying on a lawn in front of a home with a gunshot wound to the head.
Early Thursday morning, an SDPD official confirmed to 10News that the victim, identified only as a 52-year-old Hispanic male, died at the hospital from his injuries.
A woman who lives down the street from where the shooting took place told 10News, "I looked at the clock because I heard a gunshot. It was one single gunshot, I knew it wasn't a firework. It was scary. It made the hair on the back of my next stand up."
