SAN DIEGO, Cal. – An assault involving a baseball bat and a gun ended with shots fired, and a person with a gravely-serious wound.
What can only be called a brutal attack occurred in City Heights early Sunday morning. Officers were dispatched to Central Avenue shortly after 2:30 a.m., just one block south of University Avenue.
According to reports, the attack began with an 18-year-old man being attacked by three or four people with baseball bats. The young man was pursued by the subjects into the front yard of a home where people were having a social gathering.
The young man pleaded with the family for assistance and was permitted inside the home to hide. As the suspects with bats entered the front yard, one fired a handgun at the man, hitting an innocent bystander.
The 24-year-old victim is not expected to survive the bullet wound to his head. The man was rushed to Mercy Hospital where he has been listed in grave condition.
