A 32-year-old man was shot to death in Mount Hope early Saturday morning, San Diego Police Department officials confirmed.
At around 5 a.m., officers received reports of a gunshot victim in the 600 block of Denby Street.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man lying on the sidewalk, suffering from a gunshot wound.
Medics attempted to treat the man, but he died at the scene, police said.
The Medical Examiner’s office has now identified the shooting victim as San Ysidro resident Meashal Fairley.
Homicide investigators say Fairley was on the east sidewalk of Denby Street when he was shot.
Witnesses told investigators they saw a dark colored vehicle leaving the area before they discovered the man lying on the sidewalk.
On Saturday evening, police released a photograph of a vehicle similar to the one that was said to have fled the scene (pictured below). Detectives describe the suspect vehicle as a black Dodge Magnum with black rims.
The suspect or suspects responsible for this deadly shooting remain at large. Possible suspect descriptions were not immediately available.
Investigators have yet to determine a motive for the shooting. They are processing evidence found in Mount Hope and interviewing witnesses.
