San Diego Police Seek Information in East Village Shooting of 43-Year-Old Man

SAN DIEGO, Calif. — A 43-year-old man was tragically killed in a shooting that took place in the East Village over the weekend. The victim, identified as San Diego resident Ali Jabbar, was walking with a group on 16th Street near Market Street when an unknown suspect approached him and opened fire, according to San Diego police Lt. Jud Campbell.

The incident occurred around 3:05 p.m. Sunday, and despite someone reporting the shooting and a witness flagging down a nearby officer, Jabbar was found on the sidewalk in front of an apartment building, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
