    A man was shot in the face along State Route 78 in San Pasqual early Monday.

    The shooting happened in the 18000 block of San Pasqual Valley Road at the entrance to San Dieguito River Park. The area is also known as San Pasqual Clevenger Trails South.

    According to San Diego Police, the victim was standing outside of his black Escalade around 2:45 a.m. when a Toyota Tacoma pulled up and a man from inside that vehicle opened fire.

    The victim, a 27 year old man, was hit once in the face and also shot in the side. He was taken to a local hospital but it appears his injuries are not life threatening.

    At this point we don't know what the victim was doing along side the road at that time and if the victim knew the gunman or if this was a random attack.
