Man fatally shot 10 times with assault rifle outside California Carl’s Jr.
Authorities on Sunday confirmed that a man in California was shot 10 times with a military-style assault rifle while he was standing outside a fast food restaurant.
A county Medical Examiner’s office report obtained by KNSD indicated that a 43-year-old victim died after being gunned down in the parking lot of Carls’ Jr. on Sweetwater Road in National City on Saturday.
Police Lt. Robert Rounds said that the victim had been hit with 10 rounds at range of less than 15 feet. The man later died after being taken to UCSD Medical Center. His identity had not been released.
Muhammed Camran and Michael Ybarra were at a nearby golf court when they heard the gunshots.
“We were over here at the golf course just hitting some balls and we hear a loud ‘boom,’” Camran explained. “The first one was really distinctive like ‘boom-boom-boom-boom’ and we kind of ducked because it was out of nowhere.”
Police believe the gunman was Hispanic and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt. He reportedly fled in a white 1970s or 1980s pickup truck with a red stripe.
