Police investigate deadly shooting in Skyline

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - One man was killed and another was critically wounded in a shooting in the Skyline neighborhood early Sunday, a police lieutenant said.

Officers called to the 7800 block of Bloomfield Road near South Meadowbrook Drive found the mortally wounded 23-year-old man lying on a sidewalk shortly before 3 a.m., San Diego police Lt. Jorge Duran said.

He was taken to a hospital, but died shortly after, Duran said. His name was not released, pending family notification.

Officers who were securing the scene were then notified that a second shooting victim had been dropped off at another hospital, Duran said. That 21-year-old man was listed in critical condition, but had stable life signs, according to the lieutenant.

Duran said the initial investigation indicated the men were shot during an argument that broke out during a large gathering in the 7700 block of Bloomfield Road. During the confrontation, the suspect drew a handgun and shot both victims, he said.

Duran asked anyone with information on the shooting to call the Homicide Detail at (619) 531-2293, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
