A Potrero man was rushed to a nearby hospital with gunshot wounds to both legs Monday.

San Diego County sheriff’s deputies were called to the shooting on Potrero Valley Road and Harris Ranch Road around 11:45 p.m.

A caller who identified themselves as a friend of the victim reported the man had been shot twice and was bleeding badly.

The victim suffered gunshot wounds in each calf deputies said.

Law enforcement officials told NBC 7 San Diego they initially thought the shooting was accidental but have since found shell casings and are actively looking for a suspect.

Emergency crews airlifted the victim to Sharp Memorial Hospital where officials say the man’s injuries are not life-threatening.
