In a brief gun battle early

Satur­day, San Diego po­lice wounded a 30-year-old man sus­pected of killing a cus­tomer dur­ing a rob­bery at a gas sta­tion.

Of­fi­cers had gone to an apart­ment build­ing in the mid-city area af­ter re­ceiv­ing a re­port of a prowler.

Shortly be­fore 3 a.m., as two of­fi­cers were search­ing the com­mu­nity room, the sus­pect “be­gan shoot­ing through the door, nar­rowly miss­ing both of­fi­cers," said Lt. Paul Ror­ri­son.

Of­fi­cers re­turned fire, hit­ting the sus­pect at least once, Ror­ri­son said.

The sus­pect was iden­ti­fied as Ahmed Has­san Mu­min, who was wanted on sus­pi­cion of killing a cus­tomer Thurs­day night dur­ing a rob­bery at an Arco AM/PM. The cus­tomer, Eric Schade, 48, of San Diego died from at least one gun­shot to the chest, po­lice said.

Af­ter the shoot­ing at the apart­ment com­plex, Mu­min was taken to a hos­pi­tal with wounds not con­sid­ered life-threat­en­ing. None of the of­fi­cers was in­jured.

Once Mu­min is re­leased from the hos­pi­tal, he will be taken to jail on ac­cu­sa­tions of mur­der, armed rob­bery and at­tempted mur­der of two po­lice of­fi­cers, Ror­ri­son said.
