SAN DIEGO — Police were investigating after a woman was shot in the leg in Linda Vista Sunday morning.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting in the 7500 block of Linda Vista Road around 11:30 a.m., San Diego Police Officer Dino Delimitros said.

Investigators believe the shooting might be domestic-violence related, but were having a hard time getting details, Delimitros said.

“She’s being uncooperative,” he said of the victim. “We’re trying to figure out what really happened.”

At first, investigators said the woman told them she was shot by a stranger. Investigators were looking into the possibility that there was an outstanding shooting suspect.

“We have an unknown suspect armed with some type of long rifle, shotgun or rifle who shot this victim one time. We have no suspect description and no other information other than that,” said San Diego Police Lt. Chris Sharp. “We’re getting conflicting statements from her and from her male companion. That’s obviously something we’re looking into,and we’re kind of waiting for her to get out of surgery so again we can reinterview her.”

The woman’s injuries were not life-threatening.
