SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman testified Monday that her brother's girlfriend was shot in the leg following a fight outside a early morning party at an apartment in City Heights last year.
Joselyn Yancey testified at the outset of a preliminary hearing for suspected gang members Laquan Antione Jordan, 21, and Darius Peete, 19, who are charged with murder in the shooting death of 29-year-old Aaron Robinson last Oct. 2.
As police were investigating the 4 a.m. shooting of the woman on the third-floor, a resident of the apartment complex on 54th Street informed them that a man was lying inside the front door of a first-floor unit. Officers went to that residence and found the renter, Robinson, dead in the apartment.
San Diego police Lt. Kevin Rooney said the investigation revealed that the same assailants were responsible for both incidents.
Robinson had not been at the party and was shot at the entrance to his apartment, according to police. Detectives eventually identified his alleged attackers as Jordan and Peete.
Co-defendants Michael Dunbar and Deandre Grey, both 21, are charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
Yancey said she, her brother and their friends had gone to the apartment to hang out after drinking and dancing at a downtown club.
As they left the apartment, she said three men yelled out gang slogans and jumped her brother, and a melee broke out.
"It was a no-holds-barred fight," the witness said.
She was unable to identify any of the defendants in court.
The preliminary hearing will resume tomorrow. At its conclusion, Judge Michael Smyth will decide if enough evidence was presented for the defendants to stand trial.
