SAN DIEGO — Three people were shot in City Heights after at least one person fired into a crowd during an argument, police said, and officers were still searching for the people involved Thursday morning.

The fight was reported just after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night. Investigators learned “a group of people” were gathered on Winona Avenue in the Chollas Creek area arguing when there “were several gunshots fired into the crowd.”

When officers arrived, they found three gunshot victims scattered within a few blocks of the shooting, according to San Diego police. A 30-year-old man had been shot three times, a 28-year-old man was also shot three times and a 39-year-old man was shot once, officers said. All three victims were taken to a hospital. Information about their identities or conditions was not released.

Witnesses reported seeing four men running away, but a detailed description was not available, and no arrests had been made as of early Thursday.
