On Thursday morning, Thanksgiving day, two men had an altercation in the Midway District outside a 7-Eleven on Sports Arena Blvd. One of the men used an unknown weapon to cause “significant injuries” to the other guy’s neck.

The unidentified victim was taken to a local hospital where the 55-year old man died.

The suspect is still at large. At one point police believed he was in a certain area around some businesses in the Midway but figured out by 9:15 a.m. he was not.

Police have released a picture of a suspect, who was described as a white male aged between 20 and 40 wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, blue digital camouflage pants, a backpack, and a blue hospital mask.

Anyone with information is asked to call SDPD’s Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
