East County shooting leaves 3 wounded

EL CAJON, Calif. – Two young men and a teenage girl were wounded in a shooting Saturday and police sought four possible suspects in connection with the attack, police said.

Officers were called to the 1000 block of Leslie Road about noon on reports of shots fired, according to El Cajon police Lt. Mike Moulton.

The officers found three victims with non-life-threatening injuries, Moulton said.

A 24-year-old man who sustained a minor head wound ran to the 1000 block of South Magnolia Street following the shooting. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, Moulton said.

A 17-year-old girl who sustained a minor wound to her wrist, and a 19-year-old man with a minor back wound were found in the 1000 block of Leslie Road.

They were treated at the scene by paramedics and released, Moulton said.

Officers spoke with several uncooperative witnesses at the scene, many of whom said they did not see anything, Moulton said.

Possible suspects were described as four men in their mid-20s who may have arrived to the location in a newer model, black four-door vehicle, Moulton said.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call them at (619) 579-3311, or to contact San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

    Did anyone else get what was said here? Shooting in El Cajon leaves 3 wounded. Not one of them were shot. They had more like jumping out of the way wounds. A bullet wound of any kind you goto hospital. Not get released from a EMT.. An EMT cannot and will not make a decision on a bullet wound.. This is another one of those news articles to get people all bent out of shape at gun use again. Maybe if one of the people that were over 18 had a legal gun with them the shooting wouldn't have happened. Because we all know most thug shooters are spineless.
