SAN DIEGO -- A woman was shot twice in the back Thursday night in the Bay Terraces neighborhood of San Diego, and police tracked down the suspected shooter nearby.

The shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. at the Bonita Terrace Apartments on Doriana Street, near South Woodman Street.

A 20-year-old woman was standing outside her car in the parking lot of the apartment complex when the gunman walked up behind her, shot her twice in the back without saying anything and drove away, the officer said.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening, Heims said.

Officers later located the suspect, identified as 36-year-old Emmanuel Ocular, in the 4800 block of Eastgate Mall in the University City area and took him into custody, Heims said.

Gang detectives were investigating the shooting.
