A suspect is still on the loose in Rainbow after one adult male was transported to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to his stomach.

At 11 am today, Wednesday, May 31, about a dozen San Diego Sheriff's units arrived on the scene of an assault with a deadly weapon call in Rainbow.

There are deputies with weapons drawn and a Sheriff's helicopter looking for a suspect in the 4000 block of Rainbow Glen Rd. in Rainbow. The original call came in for the 1900 block of Rainbow Glen Rd. where the victim was transported from. It is not known if the shooting took place at the 1900 address.

The Sheriffs have been scouring the area, including the 2500 block and 4000 block of Rainbow Glen Rd.

A Lieutenant at the San Diego Sheriff's Command Center recommended that everyone avoid the area. There is no description available, however, they know it's a male and he's on foot and could still be in the area.

Deputies came in from out of town in marked and unmarked cars, including Oceanside and Vista k-9 units.

This is a breaking story and will be updated shortly.
