SAN DIEGO — A man was wounded Monday afternoon after he allegedly pulled a gun and exchanged fire with officers Monday during a foot chase in Logan Heights.
The shooting in the 3300 block of National Avenue took place shortly before 3:30 p.m., according to the San Diego Police Department.

The man, who was suspected of a drug-related offense, was known to officers. His name was not immediately released. No other injuries were reported.
Two officers, one a 20-year veteran and one who has been on the force for a year and a half, opened fire, police said.
A handgun was recovered at the scene, according to the SDPD.
