    Two men were standing in the driveway of a home when an unknown suspect or suspects fired at them multiple times with a handgun, police said.

    When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man down on a driveway. Lt. David Rohowits of the San Diego Police Department said the 30-year-old male victim was shot several times and died from his wounds at the scene.

    A 27-year-old male victim also sustained gunshot wounds and was transported to a trauma center with serious but non-life threatening injuries. Officials said that victim is expected to survive. The names of the victims have not yet been released.

    “We have our gang detectives on scene as well as homicide for the follow up investigation. We only have tentative information that these two people were in the driveway- beyond that, not exactly sure what happened,” said Lt. Rohowits.

    As of 9 p.m. Friday night, Lt. Rohowits said the shooting suspect or suspects were still outstanding.

    A neighbor in the area told NBC 7 that he heard four shots. The neighbor then saw the deceased victim lying the driveway of a home.

    Homicide detectives are at the scene investigating.

    At this point, Police said investigators are canvassing the area for witnesses and trying to gather information from anyone who may have seen a suspicious person or vehicle fleeing the scene after the shooting.

    There is no suspect description at this point, Lt. Rohowits confirmed.

    Anyone with information is urged to contact the Homicide Unite at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
