OCEANSIDE (CNS/News 8) - An argument over money allegedly prompted a man to beat a 40-year-old male acquaintance in the head with a pistol, then shoot the victim's 74-year-old landlady in the lower extremities tonight, Oceanside police reported.

Both victims were taken to Scripps Trauma Center and are expected to survive, police said.

The suspect is described as a 48-year-old man who fled in a red truck.

Police tell News 8 the suspect fled in a red 1997 Dodge Extra-cab pickup truck with California license plate number 5L23937.

Police were called to the 300 block of Boomvang Court at 5:25 p.m. where they found the two victims.

The landlady left the home and went to the garage to avoid the argument. However, as the suspect left the house, she was shot. It is not clear if the discharge was intentional.
