Normal Heights Shooting October 1, 2007

It is really sad to me that after such an amazing weekend in Normal Heights and the complete sense of safety and community, that I have to post this, but a lot of people are on "the Google" and are looking for information, so here, the blurb from SignOnSanDiego:

Police seek gunman in Normal Heights

San Diego police are investigating after a man was shot in Normal Heights this vening, then driven away in a pickup that crashed on state Route 15 at Interstate 8.

Police said the victim, about 35, was shot three times and was in serious condition as an ambulance took him to a hospital.

Witnesses called police at 6:11 p.m. to report that a man had fired as many as eight gunshots at a man who was pumping gas at a Valero station on Adams Avenue at West Mountain View Drive. A woman reportedly helped the wounded man into a black pickup and sped away.

The pickup may have had a blowout, causing the driver to crash into a guard rail on northbound Route 15 transition lanes toward I-8. The pickup came to a halt on the right shoulder.

The gunman, described as Latino, in his 20s, 6 feet tall, and bald, wearing black clothes, was seen running west on Adams Avenue. Officers are continuing to search for him.

To me the story already doesn't make that much sense, because the woman who was driving the victim went all the way to the 15 onramp and not the 805 on ramp which is just a block from the gas station in this story. I will follow up this post if and when more information becomes available.

Here's video from KUSI.
