On Monday afternoon, a driver was struck and wounded by gunfire in the San Diego area. This apparently took place in a road rage altercation, on Interstate 805 in the Lincoln Park area, near the 43rd Street offramp.
Officers had responded after receiving a call from the victim just before 3:30 p.m. The exact time that the incident took place has not been publicly released.
According to Investigators and Fox 5 San Diego, the victim is a male driver in a white Toyota 4Runner. The victim was shot at three times, and at least one of these bullets hit him in his left thigh.
The victim was shot at by a male passenger in a gray sedan. The sedan was being driven by a woman. Apparently, the gray sedan fled the area and went southbound on I-805. Authorities released no further physical descriptions of the driver, passenger, or sedan.
According to California Highway Patrol Officer Salvador Castro, the man was transported to a hospital in the area and treated for “non-critical injuries.” CBS8 notes that the victim was transported to Mercy Hospital, specifically.
Castro advises that anyone who is in a similar situation collect information with caution. You can attempt to get a license plate number, but “Don’t stop. Keep going. Get to a safe location. Contact 9-1-1 immediately. Don’t engage with the other person. You never know what that person may have. As we see in this incident, there was somebody with a gun.” 
NBC7 San Diego has reported that the victim’s 1-year-old daughter was also in the car at the time of the incident. Luckily, she got out of the incident unharmed.
Officers are continuing to investigate the incident.
Anyone who witnessed the event is urged to contact CHP’s San Diego Special Investigations Unit at (858)293-6000.

Neama Rahmani is the President and co-founder of West Coast Trial Lawyers.

Neama graduated from UCLA at the age of 19 and Harvard Law School at the age of 22, making him one of the youngest graduates in the 200-year history of the law school. Upon graduation, Neama was hired by O’Melveny & Myers, the largest law firm in Los Angeles, where he represented companies such as Disney, Marriott, and the Roman Catholic Church.

But Neama wanted to help ordinary people, not corporations, so he joined the United States Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted drug and human trafficking cases along the United States-Mexico border. While working as a federal prosecutor, Neama captured and successfully prosecuted a fugitive murderer and drug kingpin who had terrorized Southern California and was featured on “America’s Most Wanted.” Neama was then appointed to be the Director of Enforcement of the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission, an independent watchdog that oversees and investigates the elected officials and highest level employees of the City of Los Angeles, including the Mayor and City Council. He held that position until becoming a trial lawyer for the people.

Neama has extensive trial experience. He has led teams of more than 170 attorneys in litigation against the largest companies in the world. Neama has successfully tried dozens of cases to verdict as lead trial counsel, and has argued before both state and federal appeals courts. Over the course of his career, Neama has handled thousands of cases as attorney of record and has helped his clients obtain more than $1 billion in settlements and judgments.
