SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – San Diego police are searching for a suspect Thursday linked to a shooting in Paradise Hills that sent three people to a hospital.
The confrontation happened Wednesday just before 8:00 p.m. near the 2300 block of Rio Drive.
Police say a group of four men were sitting on a retaining wall near a parking lot, when they were approached by two other men.
Words were exchanged and one of the two men, who had approached the group, pulled out a gun and opened fire. Three people were wounded. Two are in critical condition Thursday morning.
Police admit they have little information:
"We're talking to several people who witnessed the shooting. At this point, all we have is the suspects are described as two Hispanic males in possibly a Honda vehicle that fled northbound on Rio Drive," said Lt. Paul Rorrison with San Diego Police.
Police say it's not clear if the shooting is gang-related.
