San Diego police have released the name of a man shot to death Labor Day during an argument on a residential street in the community of Southcrest.

The victim was 40-year-old Mario Galvez of San Diego, homicide Lt. Steve Shebloski said in a news release Saturday.

The shooting occurred on Una Street near Acacia Street about 5:50 p.m. Monday.

The shooter took off, possibly in a mid-size sedan, Shebloski said.

Several people called 911 and officers arrived to find Galvan in the street. They started life-saving measures until paramedics arrived and took over. Galvan was rushed to a hospital, where he died about an hour and half after the shooting, Shebloski said.

A detailed description of the gunman wasn’t immediately available.
