SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A young man was killed and two teenagers were injured in a shooting in San Diego's Lincoln Park neighborhood early Tuesday morning.

San Diego Police were called to the 4700 block of Nogal Street just after 2:30 a.m. after reports of gunfire.

Officers arrived in the neighborhood to find a 20-year-old Black male with multiple gunshot wounds to his chest in the garage of a home, SDPD officials said.

Despite life-saving measures, the man was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, a 16-year-old Asian female was struck by gunfire in her arm and abdomen, and a 17-year-old Black male was shot in his leg. The teens, who were found with the 20-year-old victim in the garage, were taken to the hospital for treatment of their non-life threatening injuries.
