San Diego police were investigating a shooting at a busy strip mall in Clairemont Wednesday morning that left at least one person injured.

Witnesses reported hearing shots fired at about 9:30 a.m. near the Five Guys at the intersection of Balboa and Genesee avenues. The gunfire may have been coming from a vehicle, witnesses told police.

When SDPD officers arrived at the scene, there was no suspect or victim(s) to be found.

Shortly after, employees with Concentra, an urgent care hospital, called police to report a man with a gunshot wound had shown up at their facility, SDPD said.
