SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 61-year-old man was shot during an argument Thursday morning in downtown San Diego’s Marina neighborhood, but he was expected to survive, police said.

The argument broke out for an unknown reason a little after midnight in the 200 block of J Street, about two blocks from the Convention Center, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.
