SAN DIEGO – A shooting in a City Heights alley turned deadly after one of the two victims died Thursday, police said.
“Our understanding is that the suspects approached the victims on foot in the alley,” said Lt. Duran. “There was a confrontation, physical fight, during which time at least one of the suspects pulled out a weapon and shot both victims.”
Investigators said the men took off from the scene in a dark-colored pickup truck, leaving the victims, ages 32 and 34, with multiple gunshot wounds.
The 34-year-old died shortly after arriving at the hospital. The 32-year-old is in serious condition, but is expected to survive.
The assailants were described as slim, short-haired Latinos in their 20s or 30s.
