A man in his late 20s suffered minor injuries when he was shot near Santa Fe Springs athletic fields Friday night, police said.

The victim was shot several times about 7 p.m. on Alburtis Avenue just outside the Jersey Athletic Fields, according to the Whittier Police Department, which patrols Santa Fe Springs.

The victim ran from the scene toward the fields after being shot, police said.

He was taken to a hospital and was expected to survive, Whittier police Sgt. Terry McAllister said.

A small dark-colored vehicle left the shooting scene with its lights off, McAllister said.
