SAN DIEGO -- A masked thief fired a handgun while robbing a sandwich shop Wednesday in the Mountain View area, but no one was injured, police said.

It happened around 9 a.m. at the Subway at 3582 National Ave., located in the Otto Square Shopping Center, San Diego police public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez said.

The gunman, who appeared to be in his 30s, fired a single shot from a black handgun inside the business, but did not strike anyone, Hernandez said. The suspect fled the eatery in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash, he said.

The suspect was described as black, 6 feet, 2 inches tall, with a heavy build and wearing a black hoodie and black mask.
