Man killed in shooting at local park

SAN DIEGO -- A man was killed in a shooting at the Willie Henderson Sports Complex in the Mountain View neighborhood of San Diego, police said Thursday morning.

Officers responded about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday to the complex at 1000 South 45th St. and found a man in the park suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Paramedics went to the scene and began life-saving efforts, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Lt. Matt Dobbs of the San Diego Police Department.

"The park was crowded at the time with soccer players and spectators, but it is not believed the victim was involved with the soccer game that was underway," Dobbs said. "Investigators are in the process of interviewing witnesses and identifying and collecting evidence, and will likely be at the scene throughout the night."

The suspects were described as three Hispanic males in their teens to twenties wearing hooded sweat shirts, last seen running from the park northbound on 45th Street, Dobbs said.

The name of the victim was not immediately released.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call the SDPD's Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
