Unidentified Gunman Shoots Two People

An unidentified gunman walked up to a man sitting on some steps near a basketball court in Oak Park and shot him three times in the back before turning his weapon on a crowd of 30 to 40 people, striking a second man in the elbow, police said today.

The shooting in the 5400 block of Bayview Heights Place occurred at about 7:50 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego police Officer David Stafford.

The shooter carried a small caliber handgun and ran from the scene, Stafford said, adding that both victims were being uncooperative with investigators.

KPBS has created a public safety coverage policy to guide decisions on what stories we prioritize, as well as whose narratives we need to include to tell complete stories that best serve our audiences. This policy was shaped through months of training with the Poynter Institute and feedback from the community. You can read the full policy here.
