SAN DIEGO -- A man was taken to a hospital Saturday morning after he was injured in an apparently random shooting in the Ridgeview/Webster area of San Diego.

A group of men were talking in a parking lot in the 1500 block of Altadena Avenue at 12:45 a.m. when another man who was walking around the parking lot pulled a gun and opened fire on the group without saying anything, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

The 53-year-old victim was struck in his left knee and taken to a hospital for treatment, Heims said. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

A detailed description of the shooter, who was last seen running away southbound on Altadena Avenue, was not immediately available.
