A shooting in City Heights left a young man with an apparently non-life-threatening bullet wound to the chest late this afternoon.
The gunfire erupted in the 4000 block of 42nd Street shortly after 4 p.m., according to San Diego police.
Witnesses reported that the assailant fled in a small green car occupied by several other men, Officer Dino Delimitros said.
Medics took the victim, whose name was not released, to a hospital for treatment of a single gunshot wound. He was expected to survive, Delimitros said.
Police believe the shooting may be gang-related.
