Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) - The search is on Wednesday for a suspect who shot an elderly woman in Oceanside and pistol whipped the man who was renting a room from her.

Oceanside police say a business deal went bad when the violence erupted Tuesday afternoon in the 300 block of Boomvang Court.

One of the victims is the 74-year-old woman who owned the home. She was shot in the leg and is reportedly the suspect's girlfriend's mother. The other victim is a 40-year-old man.

Both victims were airlifted to Scripps La Jolla's trauma center with non life-threatening injuries.

Neighbors say they've seen the suspect at the house before with his red pick-up truck

"I've seen it up there before. The gentleman never had any problems. If we had ever seen anything, we'd have reported it. I've never seen any problems or anything coming from the home," said neighbor Damian Garcia.

Oceanside police say the suspect is a 48-year-old black male, who was last seen in a red 1997 Dodge extended cab, pick-up truck with license plate number: 5L23937.

If you have any information, you're urged to call Oceanside police at 760-435-4580.
