Male teen wounded in Fallbrook shooting

Posted: Updated:

FALLBROOK (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy was shot four times in a barrage of bullets near Ammunition Road in Fallbrook, a sheriff's sergeant said Saturday.

The boy and a 20-year-old man were leaving a friend's house in the 1200 block of South Main Ave. about 10 p.m. Friday when a 2000-2001 Chevy Monte Carlo with three males in their late teens to early 20s pulled up alongside, according to sheriff's Sgt. Patrick Yates.

The gunman and another suspect hopped out of the car, while the driver remained inside, Yates said. The gunman screamed "Vista Home Boys," and unleashed eight shots from a .40-caliber handgun, Yates said.

Four of those bullets struck the teen, Yates said. His companion was not injured.

The suspects drove away and the injured teen called his mother, who took him to a hospital in Fallbrook, Yates said.

The teen was later transferred to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido and is expected to survive, Yates said.

Sheriff's gang detectives were called in to investigate.
