SAN DIEGO – A 28-year-old man was hurt in a shooting Tuesday during a suspected robbery attempt in the Barrio Logan area, police said.
Officers responded just before 5:30 a.m. to the 2900 block of Boston Avenue near South 29th Street where they found the victim laying in the street, San Diego police Sgt. Kevin Andreen said. The victim, who wasn’t publicly identified, had a gunshot wound on the right side of his chest and an exit wound on the left side of his chest.
Crews were able to provide life-saving measures to the man with his chest sealed, Andreen said. He was transported to an area hospital in stable condition and police believe that he will survive.
Not much is known about the suspects in the attack. They were described as two Hispanic men who possibly were wearing black clothing.
Both men were believed to have fled the area traveling northbound on Interstate 5, according to Andreen.
