Wounded Gunshot Victim Dropped of at Police Station

A man was dropped off at a police substation Monday night with a gunshot wound to the leg, prompting an investigation outside the station and in City Heights. 

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said the man was on the 4000 block of Van Dyke Avenue in City Heights when one gunshot rang out at about 8:30 p.m. and he was struck in the upper leg.

He was then driven to a police substation in Mid City.

His neighbor dropped him off at the station in a dark-colored, late model Ford Mustang, where he was pulled out of the vehicle before the neighbor drove off, SDPD Officer John Buttle said. 

The entrance of the Mid City substation was blocked off by crime tape as detectives investigated. 

Luckily for the victim, a fire station was nearby and medics were able to get to the man quickly and transport him to an area hospital.

His injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The man was reportedly involved in a verbal altercation with at least one other person near the scene.

No arrests have been made. Officers do not believe the shooting was gang-related.
