SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men were fatally shot in City Heights and a third person was critically wounded, San Diego police said Sunday.
The victims were standing outside an apartment on 44th Street, near Maple Street, about 10:55 p.m. Saturday when they were approached by three men in dark clothing who opened fire, then ran back to a nearby vehicle, according to San Diego police Lt. Kevin Rooney.
Citizens called in reports of multiple gunshots in the area, Rooney said, and officers rushed to the area.
Officers found two shooting victims in the 2600 block of 44th Street, near Maple Street, and another in a west alley off 44th Street, Rooney said.
All three were taken to a hospital, he said. Rickquese McCoy, 18, and Stephen McClendon, 34, were both declared dead before midnight, Rooney said.
Police withheld the name of the survivor, who underwent surgery and was said to be hospitalized in critical condition.
The suspects may have fled in a silver-colored Ford Taurus, which was last seen headed west on Maple Street.
What triggered the shooting was unknown, police said. Police asked anyone with more information about the shootings to call detectives (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
