Man Knocked Unconscious, Shot in Arm in Apparent Road Rage Near SDSU

A man was shot in an apparent road rage incident early Sunday morning in Del Cerro, police said.

The incident happened around 1 a.m. in the 520 block of Adobe Falls Road, near San Diego State University, San Diego police Sgt. Michael Tansey said.

The 57-year-old man was crossing the street to meet with a friend when he was almost struck a sedan, he said. The man argued with the driver of the sedan, who then stepped out of the car and started to fight the man, Tansey said.

The man was knocked unconscious and when he regained consciousness, he was driven to the hospital by a bystander, the sergeant said. 

When he got to the hospital, he realized he had been shot in the arm, Tansey said. He was then transferred to the trauma unit for treatment to his injuries.

"He sustained a contusion and hematoma to his left temple and a single gunshot wound to his right forearm," Tansey said. "His injuries are considered non-life threatening."

The suspect was described as a 6-foot-2 Pacific Islander man with long hair and weighing 220 pounds.

Anyone with information about the incident was urged to contact to SDPD Eastern Division or call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477
