National City police are investigating a shooting Tuesday night that left two men injured, one critically.

Police received reports of shots fired shortly after 11:20 p.m. on East Fourth Street near F Avenue. When officers arrived they found a 21-year-old man who had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body, said National City police Lt. Derek Aydelotte. He was transported to the hospital, where he underwent surgery.

The second victim, an 18-year-old man, was shot while he was inside a vehicle, Aydelotte said.

He was located a couple blocks from the shooting scene inside a residence. He was transported to the hospital, where he was reported in stable condition.

Police are still trying to determine what led up to the shooting. Anyone who witnessed the shooting was asked to contact National City police at (619) 336-4411 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

“We don’t know how many suspects at this point,” Aydelotte said.
