San Diego police say they have no leads in the brazen shooting of a man at his home near Encanto.

Investigators are working to determine who shot the 57-year-old man in the head on what neighbors described as a normal Saturday.

Those who heard and saw the incident in the 8200-block of Solana Street say the crime is one big mystery.

"All of a sudden we heard a loud bang and everybody came running out and neighbors were running back and forth saying this guy got shot," said witness Steven Swanson.

The shooting victim was found in a driveway just before 9 p.m. according to police. Solana Street is located near Jamacha Road and Skyline Drive.

Swanson said immediately after the shooting, residents started giving the shooting victim chest compressions. A registered nurse who lives in the neighborhood took over the CPR until emergency personnel arrived.

"We came out so fast we didn't see anything, anybody run away, we didn't see any cars," he said.

Investigators said the man remains hospitalized with a life-threatening gunshot wound to the head.

He was not robbed. When officers found him, the victim still had his wallet.

There have been no reports of a car speeding away or anything suspicious after the shooting.

The victim has no gang connections according to investigators.

Because the bullet comes from small-caliber weapon, they're not sure at what range the shot was fired.

Anyone with information on the shooting can call San Diego County Crimestoppers at (888) 580-8477.
