SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Five people were stabbed and three other people were shot during two, separate unrelated house parties in San Diego, a police officer said Sunday.
A dispute spilled out into the street from a party attended by at least 100 people about 11 p.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of Howard Ave., said San Diego police officer Dino Delimitros.
A suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed five people. None of the wounds were considered life threatening, Delimitros said.
The suspect was described as a 16-to-18 year old Latino male with a thin build, wearing a black jacket and red hat, he said.
At about the same time, in the 200 block of South Pardee St., a gang-related argument escalated into a shooting. One of the people in a group that had left the party returned with a gun, issued a gang challenge, pulled out a gun and shot three people, he said.
The victims ranged from 16 to 22 years old. None of the gunshot wounds were considered life threatening, the officer said.
The suspect was described as a heavy set, 16-to-25 year old Latino man, Delimitros said.
