SAN DIEGO -- A woman was killed and two other people were injured in a shooting at a Church's Chicken in Otay Mesa on Wednesday, police said.

The shooting happened about 5:30 p.m. at the fast food restaurant at Del Sol and Picador boulevards, San Diego Police Sgt. Kevin Gibson said.

Officers at the scene reported that a man went into the restaurant, placed a food order and then opened fire, Gibson said, citing information he heard over police radio. It appeared that at least one of the victims was a Church's Chicken employee.

At least two ambulances and one San Diego Fire-Rescue Department engine went to the scene, according to an online Fire-Rescue Department incident log. One of the victims, a 28-year-old woman, died at a hospital. The other two victims' injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

The suspect was described as a thin, black man who was last seen wearing a blue Chargers beanie, red sunglasses and a dark sweater. He may have fled the area in a blue car.
