On Saturday, June 22 at about 1:10 a.m., the San Diego Police Department’s Communication Center received a radio call of an assault occurring at the 4300 block of Mission Blvd.

Officers arrived on scene a few minutes later and located an adult man at that location with trauma to his upper torso. Officers performed life saving measures on the victim until relieved by San Diego Fire Department Paramedics. The victim was transported to a local hospital by the paramedics. Unfortunately, the man succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital.

San Diego Police Homicide Detectives were called to the scene to investigate the incident. Although it is very early in the investigation, we have learned the victim and suspect became involved in an argument. The interaction escalated, resulting in the victim’s death.

The victim has been identified as 40-year-old Sean Paul Snellman.

The suspect is a black male in his 20s to 30s, last seen wearing a black shirt and dark jeans. The suspect was carrying a skateboard and fled the area on foot.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

So, there's currently a murderer on the loose in the Pacific Beach area.

Please don't assume that the murderer lives in P.B., but he's loose somewhere.
