SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities identified two people Tuesday morning who were fatally shot as they sat in a Nissan sedan in a convenience store parking lot in Colina Del Sol.
Another person was wounded in the attack, which happened about 12:15 a.m. Sunday near El Cajon Boulevard and 52nd Street.
The fatal victims were identified as Oceanside residents Deon Fontaine Peterson, 27, and Joseph Anthony Ponder, 26, San Diego police Lt. Paul Rorrison said.
One of two women who were also in the vehicle was shot in the upper body and hospitalized in critical condition. Her condition has since improved and her injuries were no longer considered life-threatening, Rorrison said.
