SAN DIEGO (CNS) – An unidentified shirtless assailant opened fire on a man Thursday as the victim was sitting in a car parked outside an East Village fast food restaurant, leaving him with a minor bullet wound.

The gunman shot the victim during a confrontation in a parking lot at the McDonald’s in the 1200 block of Park Boulevard about 12:30 p.m., according to San Diego police.

Following the gunfire, both men fled the area on foot, Officer Scott Lockwood said.
