Man Shot Multiple Times in Escondido Neighborhood

A man was rushed to the hospital after a shooting on an Escondido street Monday.

Escondido police were called to West Fifteenth Avenue near Escondido Boulevard at 1 p.m. after gunshots were reported.

“I just heard like five or six shots. When I came out, there was a guy laying out on the sidewalk over there,” neighbor Charles Ansley said.

The injured man was transported to nearby Palomar Hospital where he underwent surgery Monday evening. His name and condition have not been released.

It appears there was a fight in the street. After the victim was knocked to the ground, there were multiple shots fired, police said.

The suspect fled in a gray pickup truck with a black ladder, likely a Dodge made between 1998 and 2000, officials said.

Police remained on the scene into the evening Monday collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses.
