SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 25-year-old man was wounded Saturday in a shooting in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The shooting happened at 1:52 a.m. in the 4900 block of Magnus Way, according to Officer Sarah Foster of the San Diego Police Department.

The victim was sitting in his vehicle when he heard gunshots from behind him and his rear window break, Foster said.
