SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Police are searching for the man they say shot at two people in a Clairemont strip mall before fleeing in an SUV Wednesday morning.

Police say a heavy-set Hispanic man shot at two men in the 5600 block of Balboa Ave. at about 9:30 a.m. The two men were standing near or were inside a red Ford Mustang, San Diego Police added.

One of the victim fled the area on foot, while the other victim, a 21-year-old man, drove himself to a nearby urgent car facility. He was treated for a gunshot wound to the upper leg.

The suspect was a passenger in a white GMC SUV that was being driven by a woman, SDPD said. Both suspects fled the scene in the SUV.

It's still unclear what led up to the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call SDPD at 619-531-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
