A 29-year-old man was shot in the upper left thigh while standing at a bus stop Sunday morning in the Otay Mesa West community.

A witness reported to police about 1:15 a.m. that he saw the victim standing at a bus stop in the 3200 block of Palm Avenue when he heard a gunshot and then saw the victim drop to the ground, said San Diego police Officer Robert Heims.

Paramedics rushed the 29-year-old man to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Heims said.
