SAN DIEGO — A 19-year-old man was wounded Wednesday evening in a shooting at a Linda Vista park.
Around 6:15 p.m., the victim and two other people were arguing at Kelly Street Neighborhood Park when one of them pulled out a gun and shot at the victim several times, according to San Diego police. The victim was shot once in his left forearm and was taken to a local hospital to be treated for the non-life threatening injury.
Police say officers detained four possible suspects — three juveniles and one adult — for questioning.
The shooting is the third within three months on the same street, the Union-Tribune reports. In May, a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed in the 6500 block of Kelly Street. Twenty-year-old Andy Phonsongkham was charged with his murder. Less than a month later, a 15-year-old and a 20-year-old were shot near a memorial for the boy.
SDPD’s Gang Unit is investigating.
