Gunman sought after deadly shooting in Skyline

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Police were on the lookout Monday for a gunman who shot and killed two men in the Skyline neighborhood and wounded a third, authorities said.

The three victims, all in their early 20s, were standing in the area of Siena Street and Skyline Drive around 9:30 p.m. Sunday when a man in dark clothing approached and opened fire, said San Diego police Lt. Mike Hastings.

Witnesses say gunshots rang out during a possible house party that spilled out to the street with dozens of people.

Neighbors tell CBS News 8 this is not the first time they have seen gun violence. They believe a group of 30 people were outside and a fight broke out, causing gang retaliation. That has yet to be confirmed by police.

One victim died at the scene and another at the hospital. The third man was treated and released with a possible gunshot wound to his arm. No arrests have been made. 

The San Diego Police Department Homicide Unit says details are still sketchy but they are looking for a black male wearing dark clothing.

"At this time all we have is four black males in a dark colored vehicle and that's all we have at this time and there are people we are interviewing," Lt. Hastings said.

Neighbors wanted to remain anonymous but say it is vital to speak out and find the shooter.

"When you let stuff like this go - you just allow it to continue to happen. But when you stop it - it stops it. Whoever did this deserves to do time in jail...Somebody come forward and tell the truth so the families of the victims can rest and that we can put an end to it," a neighbor said.

Investigators have identified the murder victims but are not releasing their names until family has been contacted.

Police urged anyone with information on the shooting to call the San Diego Police Department's Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
