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.
The fourth occupant of the Nissan was not hurt.
Rorrison said the victims were shot by at least one man who was in a group near a light pole. The victims pulled up next to the group and a verbal altercation ensued prior to the shooting.
A detailed description of the suspects was not immediately available. Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call them at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
