Man Shot and Killed: Police Need Your Help

This happened on Sunday after the game; I'm sorry I didn't post it before, especially because the shooting took place within a couple miles of my neighborhood.

CITY HEIGHTS – A San Diego man was beaten by one group
of men and then shot and killed by another assailant as he lay on a sidewalk
Sunday night.

Rudy Valdez, 25, had gotten into a fight with four other
men just before 7 p.m. in front of a home on 36th Street near Cherokee Street,
San Diego police said. He was on the ground when a man in a pickup pulled up,
got out of the truck, walked over and shot him.

Valdez died minutes later, police said.

The gunman is described as Hispanic, in his late
20s, bald and clean shaven, with a thin build. He was wearing a white T-shirt
and black pants.

The pickup was described as a raised, dark blue Toyota
Tundra, with big rims and wheels and a Chargers lightning bolt in the rear

Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to
call homicide detectives at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-TIPS,
where callers can remain anonymous.
