SAN DIEGO — A man was arrested Thursday morning on suspicion of shooting at a man riding a bike on the Mission Beach Boardwalk, police said.
Around 1:45 a.m. a person called 911 to report hearing gunshots near the intersection of Nantasket Court and Ocean Front Walk, just west of Mission Boulevard, San Diego police Officer Tony Martinez said.
Investigators learned a 28-year-old man got into an argument with a man on a bike for unknown reasons, then fired multiple shots at the other man with a rifle but did not hit him, Martinez said.

As police began to search the area, an Uber driver told officers the suspect had requested a ride and the driver gave officers the suspected gunman’s location, Manansala said. The man was tackled to the ground while being arrested.
Police also searched the man’s home and found at least one firearm, a rifle, inside a bedroom, Manansala said. Detectives with the San Diego Police Department’s western division were investigating the shooting.
