Police Search for 2 Suspects Who Shot Man in Thigh at Mission Valley Hotel

Police are searching for two suspects involved in a shooting at a Mission Valley motel that injured one man, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Just after 4 a.m., officers were called to Motel 6 on Hotel Circle North after a man was shot in his upper left thigh.

Police said the victim, described as a man in his 40s, was shot and then came down to the motel lobby to ask for help.

SDPD Lt. Christian Sharp said there appeared to be a fight or struggle between the suspects and the victim, according to security footage obtained by police.

“It appears that we only have one shot that was fired at this time,” Sharp told NBC 7.

SDPD is now looking for two suspects: a 5-foot-9 man and a 5-foot-5 woman, both described as in their 20s. The man was last seen wearing a blue hoodie, and the woman was last seen wearing a blanket, officers told NBC 7.

Both reportedly fled the scene.

A gun magazine was found outside of a motel room, though police haven’t confirmed if it was used in the shooting Wednesday.

The victim was later transported to UCSD Medical Center for treatment.

No evacuations were made for residents in the Motel 6, Sharp confirmed.

Multiple police patrol cars could be seen parked outside the motel's entrance. Sharp said officers have cleared the area but continue to investigate.

No other information was available.
