A man in his early 20s was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting  in the Skyline area of southeast San Diego, police said Sunday.

The victim was standing in the intersection of Brookhaven Road and Sears Avenue when a dark-colored sedan drove near him and some shots were fired from inside the car, according to Lt. Manny Del Toro of the San Diego Police Department.

The dark-colored sedan then drove away eastbound on Brookhaven Road, Del Toro said.

"Police also learned there was a party in the area of the shooting, but it is unknown if anyone from the party was involved," he said.
