Bullet Casings Found Where Man Says He Was Targeted by Shooter

Bullet casings were found near a Lincoln Park trolley stop early Monday morning where a man told police he was targeted by a shooter. 

The 32-year-old man was sitting at the Metropolitan Transit System station at 47th Street when he noticed a laser dot on him, the San Diego Police Department said.

He looked up and saw sparks coming from across the street so he ran away from the station toward homes and apartment complexes, SDPD said. 

When police found the man he was not struck by a bullet or injured. Police said they did find three shell casings and one projectile near items the man left behind when he ran. 

Detectives believe the sparks were caused by the projectile hitting a fence. It is not clear what kind of weapon was used. 

There are no suspects in custody and police said they have no leads.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
