As it's still early in the investigation, Brown said detectives have learned that a man wearing a dark shirt walked up to the victim and fired at him before leaving the scene in a dark vehicle.
Detectives are trying to locate evidence and any possible witnesses after being aware of a large crowd present at the time of the incident who scattered immediately when police arrived.
The victim has been identified but his name is not being released at this time. Police describe him as a 40-year-old.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at (619)531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
