A man was shot and killed Wednesday night in Oak Park and police are trying to track down the suspect, according to the San Diego Police Department.
SDPD responded to Joyce Place off Redwood Street, east of 54th Avenue, just after 9:30 p.m. and found a man with a gunshot wound to the back in a home's front yard, SDPD Officer Darius Jamsetjee said.
The man was conscious and breathing when police arrived but died from his injuries at the hospital or as medics were taking him there, Jamsetjee said. He has been identified as 44-year-old Bao Duong.
The suspect, whose identity has not been determined, may have left the scene in a white Nissan, according to Jamsetjee. There was no description of a suspect.
