SAN DIEGO – A man told a trespasser to get off his driveway and was shot in his hand, police said Sunday.

The man was in his home in the 3000 block of Logan Avenue around 8 p.m. Saturday, when he heard a noise in his front yard, and went outside to investigate, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department. He found an unknown man standing in his driveway, who he confronted and told to leave.
