Man injured in Fallbrook shooting

Sheriff's deputies are investigating a shooting that left one man injured Sunday evening in Fallbrook.

The shooting took place just before 5:30 p.m. near the intersection of East Mission Road and Iowa Street, San Diego County Sheriff's Deputy Pat McEvoy said.

A young adult male suffered a gunshot injury to the right leg, according to North County Fire Capt. John Choi. The man was taken to Palomar Medical Center for treatment of the non-life-threatening injury.

McEvoy said sheriff's deputies were on-scene and searching for a suspect as of about 7:30 p.m.

It's the second shooting in Fallbrook in as many days; on Saturday, one person was shot and killed in the 700 block of Convertible Lane. That incident remained under investigation as well, and sheriff's deputies did not say whether they believe the two are connected.
