SAN DIEGO — Police are searching for two men accused of fatally shooting another man Sunday night at a hotel in downtown San Diego.

Shortly after 9 p.m., officers found an 18-year-old Escondido man with apparent gunshot wounds inside a room at the Days Inn in the 800 block of Ash Street, Lt. Andra Brown said. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he died. Authorities have not released the victim’s name.

Detectives say the man was in a hotel room with several people before he was shot. According to police, three men walked away from the room. One is believed to have shot the victim.

Two of the men are considered suspects, both described as being Hispanic with one wearing a light-colored hoodie and the other wearing a white T-shirt and a hat. The third man has been identified and is considered a witness, according to Brown.

Police say the suspects fled the scene driving northbound on 9th Avenue in a small, light-colored vehicle.
