Man Shot to Death Behind Hookah Lounge ID'd

The 29-year-old was gunned down at 3 Kings Hookah Lounge Sunday

San Diego Police have released the name of the man shot to death behind a Rolando hookah lounge Sunday.

Rodney Vanburean Harmon, a 29-year-old San Diego resident, was at the 3 Kings Hookah Lounge at about 4 a.m. Sunday, after the business had closed.

The owner says the few left inside heard a loud banging on the door, so Harmon got up to answer it. He was shot in the chest and died in the nearby alley.

SDPD says the suspect ran east from the building on El Cajon Boulevard. He is described as a dark-skinned man between 5-foot-8 and six-feet tall, wearing a dark-colored sweatshirt and pants.

The hookah lounge owner told NBC 7 he has given police surveillance video of the shooting so they can find the suspect.

Investigators have not released a possible motive for the shooting.
