San Diego homicide detectives have released the name of a man who was shot and killed in San Diego's Webster area Saturday morning.

San Diego resident Paris Pierre Von Hill, 20, was found shot and lying on a sidewalk with fatal injuries to his head Saturday at 6:30 a.m. on 47th Street and Federal Boulevard.

As a result of a gunshot wound, he was pronounced dead at the scene, SDPD Lt. Mike Hastings confirmed.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a fight broke out early Saturday morning near where the man was found. 

Witnesses said they heard at least one or two gunshots in the area early Saturday morning, and two men were seen leaving the area in a grey, four-door car.

Witness Abraham Ortiz is the stocking manager at Great Western Building Materials in the 4500-block of Federal Boulevard. He told NBC 7 he saw the victim’s body on the street Saturday morning, as well as police officers.

He told police that his building maintains surveillance cameras around the area and offered the footage to investigators.

Ortiz said he was shaken up by the victim’s death, describing it as something straight out of a crime show.

"It's scary -- I only see this on TV -- never in person," said Ortiz. "This guy, somebody killed him, he's been shot or something."

Ortiz said there’s a nightclub near the scene that often holds parties, so perhaps the victim was coming from there when he was injured.

The homicide remains under investigation. Police have not released a suspect description. Hastings said investigators are still working to determine whether or not the slaying is gang-related.

Anyone with information on this case should contact the SDPD's Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
