At least one person was shot Friday at an apartment complex near Hollywood Park in City Heights.

Shots were fired just before 5 p.m. at a complex on Juniper Street where it meets Sumac Drive and the entrance to the park, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Investigators say a 24-year-old man was walking on Juniper when he was approached by five males. "Words were exchanged and the victim ran from the group," SDPD said.

One of the suspects shot at the man as he ran, hitting him in the shoulder and hip. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

The group of suspects ran northbound on Juniper. The shooter was described as a muscular 5-foot 10-inch man wearing a blue hoodie with a white shirt, black sweatpants and black shoes.

No other information was available.
