At Least 2 People Open Fire on Man in Mountain View

A man walking on a Mountain View street late Thursday died after being shot multiple times by at least two people, according to the San Diego Police Department.

The shooting occurred on Hemlock Street near 38th Street and Ocean View Boulevard at about 11:15 p.m., San Diego Police Department Capt. Anthony Dupree said. 

The 57-year-old man was walking along Hemlock Street when a car approached him from the front. Dupree said a passenger jumped out of the vehicle and began firing on the man while another person fired from the driver's side of the vehicle as well. 

The man collapsed on the sidewalk. Medics transported the man to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The passenger got back into the car and the vehicle fled from the scene, Dupree said. 

No arrests have been made and police had very little description of the suspects or the vehicle. The vehicle was described as a dark-colored sedan and the suspects were believed to be men in dark clothing, Dupree said. 

Police said they were interviewing a family member who told police they witnessed part of the shooting.

The man's sister, who did not want to be identified, told NBC 7 he was a loving father and uncle who was walking home after getting a burrito at the time that he was shot. 

Homicide detectives remained at the scene overnight to investigate the scene. 

SDPD asked anyone with information regarding the incident to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
