Man dies after being shot in head outside grocery store


SAN DIEGO – A man was shot in the head and killed near an East Village parking garage late Tuesday.

Callers reported hearing multiple gun shots some time around 10 p.m. by the garage on G Street between 14th and 15th streets that serves the Albertsons grocery store.

Officers found the 37-year-old victim, who has not been publicly identified, in the driveway of the grocery store. He suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene, San Diego Police Lt. Andra Brown said.

“It is early in the investigation and little is known about the circumstances surrounding the man’s death,” Brown said.

Witnesses reported seeing a man wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and a black hat run through the parking garage after the shooting, then turn westbound on Market Street, the lieutenant said. A detailed description of the man was not immediately available.

No arrests had been made and the circumstances leading up to the shooting were still under investigation Wednesday morning.
