Suspect shoots man; flees scene

Two unknown suspects approached a man who was smoking near California

Street and 22nd Avenue on Sept. 6.


As the suspects approached, the victim got scared and started shooting them with pepper

spray. He then tried to run away.


But one of the suspects took out a handgun and shot the fleeing victim.

He was transported to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.


The assailants, both described as being in their 20s, got into a vehicle and

fled the scene.
