Officers called to the 7800 block of Bloomfield Road near South Meadowbrook Drive found the mortally wounded 23-year-old man lying on a sidewalk shortly before 3 a.m., San Diego police Lt. Jorge Duran said.
He was taken to a hospital, but died shortly after, Duran said. His name was not released, pending family notification.
Officers who were securing the scene were then notified that a second shooting victim had been dropped off at another hospital, Duran said. The 21-year-old man was listed in critical condition, but was in stable condition, according to the lieutenant.
Duran said the initial investigation indicated the men were shot during a argument that broke out during a large gathering in the 7700 block of Bloomfield Road. During the confrontation, the suspect drew a handgun and shot both victims, he said.
Anyone with information on the shooting should call SDPD’s homicide unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
