Man Shot Multiple Times at National City Bar: PD

A man was found with multiple gunshot wounds in the doorway of a National City bar early Friday, police said.

National City Police on patrol heard five gunshots just a few minutes after 1 a.m. Soon after, police said they received several 911 calls from 108 W 25th Street.

Officers found a shooting victim at Stoney's Bar and Grill with multiple gunshot wounds.

“It does appear it happened in the doorway,” said Sgt. Thomas Wilkins with National City PD. “Smack dab in front.”

The man was described by officials as 32 years old.

Officials say he was rushed to a local trauma center with life-threatening injuries.

When officers got to the scene, they also spotted a grey sedan speeding away with its lights off.

Officers detained the two men inside that car just a few yards away from the bar.

It's still unclear whether these men are suspects or connected to this shooting.

The area along 25th Street from Hoover to Transportation Avenue was blocked off to traffic because of the investigation.

No other information was immediately available.
