The man was walking toward the front door of the 7-Eleven on the 900 block of Sierra Vista Drive when the suspect approached, fired at him and fled, police said.

The man suffering from a gunshot wound was transported to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police described the suspect as a Hispanic man with a medium building who stands between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6-1.

He was last seen wearing dark blue clothing and a blue L.A. Dodgers baseball cap, police said.
