SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A man died late Thursday night after police said he was shot multiple times in the Mountain View area.

San Diego police responded to reports of gunfire in the 3800 block of Hemlock Street at around 11:30 p.m., and when officers arrived, they found a man down with multiple gunshot wounds.

After CPR was performed on the victim, he was rushed to Scripps Mercy Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police believe the 57-year-old victim was shot at least 10 times.

According to SDPD officials: "San Diego Police Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Although it is very early in the investigation, we have learned the victim was in the area when a dark colored sedan approached him and stopped. A passenger exited the vehicle and began shooting at the victim while shots were also fired from the driver’s side of the vehicle. The victim was struck several times and collapsed on the sidewalk. The passenger got back into the vehicle and the vehicle fled westbound on Hemlock Street."

The suspected shooter was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s standing at 5 feet 10 inches tall, with shoulder-length curly hair and a thin build. He was seen wearing a black jacket, black pants and a black baseball cap.

According to witnesses, the suspected shooter may have fled the scene in a black 4-door sedan, possibly a Nissan Maxima or Altima, with no license plates.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to contact San Diego police.
