Fatal San Diego Shooting Victims Identified, Suspect Still At Large

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA – A tragic incident unfolded over the Presidents Day weekend as a 43-year-old man, Ali Jabbar, was fatally shot while walking in East Village. The San Diego Police Department reported that Jabbar was gunned down in front of an apartment building on 16th Street. Although paramedics rushed him to the hospital, he was pronounced dead upon arrival. Investigations revealed that the shooter intentionally targeted Jabbar before fleeing the scene in a silver or gray vehicle, leaving his companions unharmed.

The assailant, described as a man in dark clothing, remains at large as the police continue their search for him. The incident prompted the closure of 16th Street between Market and G Streets for several hours to facilitate the investigation. The San Diego Police Homicide Detectives have taken over the case and are urging anyone with relevant information to contact the Homicide Unit or Crime Stoppers.

A previously misleading headline in this story indicated that the shooting was a drive-by, leading to confusion due to another unrelated shooting in the Gaslamp Quarter. However, it is crucial to clarify that the unfortunate incident involving Ali Jabbar was unrelated to the drive-by shooting. The San Diego community awaits further updates on the ongoing investigation as they mourn the loss of Jabbar.
