A 32-year-old limo driver was shot and wounded Sunday morning in the Mountain View area by a shotgun wielding assailant, a San Diego police officer said.

The attack took place about 2:15 a.m. at the intersection of 40th and Teak streets, SDPD Officer Robert Heims said.

The driver was dropping off his passengers when a man walked up to his limo and opened fire with a shotgun. The driver was hit in his left arm and transported to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, Heims said.

The male suspect then fled the scene.

A motive for this attack was unknown.

The attack remained under investigation by SDPD gang detectives, Heims added.
