SAN DIEGO — A 32-year-old man was taken to the hospital after a suspected gang-related shooting in Logan Heights early Sunday evening.

Officers responded to calls about gunshots on 30th Street near Franklin Avenue shortly after 5 p.m., San Diego Police Lt. Andra Brown said.

A gunshot victim had apparently moved from the place he was shot to a home off a nearby alley, where paramedics arrived to take him to the hospital. Brown said officers believe three shots were fired, which investigators suspect was gang-related.

The victim was treated for several gunshot wounds to the upper body, which were not expected to be life-threatening, according to SDPD Officer John Buttle.
