SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — Police are actively searching for a man in a San Francisco 49ers jersey after he allegedly shot someone in the leg in downtown San Diego Sunday evening.

According to the San Diego Police Department, the shooting happened around 8:10 p.m. in the 700 block of Sixth Ave.

Police say following the shooting, the gunman fled the scene and escaped westbound on G Street. Officers were speaking with either the shooter's or the victim's girlfriend to gather more information on the identity of the shooter.

SDPD is asking the public to look out for two white men with blonde hair in a dark four-door Ford or Chevy truck with chrome rims. The driver might be wearing a 49ers jersey and the passenger on back driver’s side might be wearing a 49ers hat.

There is no word on the condition of the victim. The shooting comes shortly after the 49ers fell to the Los Angeles Rams 20-17 in the NFC Conference Championship.

This is a developing story and it will be updated as more information becomes available.
