SAN DIEGO — A 27-year-old man was hospitalized Tuesday after he was shot in the arm and the hip near an East Village intersection, police said.
Dispatchers received reports shortly before 11:40 p.m. Monday of a shooting near the intersection of 17th Street and J Street, just west of Interstate 5, San Diego police Officer Robert Heims said.
The man was walking near the intersection when he was shot twice by a gunman, who fled in a vehicle last seen heading southbound on 17th Street, Heims said.
The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of gunshot wounds to his left bicep and upper right hip, which were not believed to be life-threatening, the officer said.
No suspect or vehicle descriptions were immediately available.
Detectives with the San Diego Police Department’s central division were investigating the shooting.
