Shots Fired Near San Ysidro Outlet Mall: SDPD

A gunshot wound victim found in Chula Vista may be connected to a shooting heard by many shoppers at a San Ysidro outlet mall, San Diego Police (SDPD) say. 

The incident happened at 12:45 p.m. Monday on the 4400 block of Camino De La Plaza.

Police say people in a white car and a red, compact car were apparently exchanging gunfire, though it is unclear how many people were in each car. 

Customers reported hearing several gun shots in the area, SDPD said, and then saw two cars speed off in an unknown direction. 

When investigators arrived on scene, they found casings and broken glass in the area. 

Chula Vista Police (CVPD) said a person with a gunshot wound found on the 800 block of Anita Street in Chula Vista may be connected to the incident. 

CVPD officers told SDPD officers about the victim and vehicle found with him because it matched the description of one of the vehicles seen leaving the outlets after the shooting. 

Police are securing the victim's vehicle for evidence processing.

The victim was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. 

No further information was immediately available.
