An alleged drug deal went bad in Spring Valley, leaving one person with a gunshot wound in the leg and an armed and dangerous suspect on the loose.

A 20-year-old man went to the 8200 block of Loma View Court just after 7 p.m. Wednesday to sell marijuana to a 22-year-old suspect, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

As the transaction played out, the suspect aimed a handgun at the victim, and the two men started struggling.

Each fought to get control of the weapon, but the gun fired, hitting the victim in the leg.

The suspect stole the victim’s marijuana, cell phone, wallet and necklace and escaped in a black Honda Accord, investigators said.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Detectives said they know the name of the suspect, but he is still at-large and is considered armed and dangerous. The identities of those involved have not been released.

If you have information about the incident, call the Rancho San Diego Sheriff’s Station at 619-660-7090.
