When officer arrived, a man led them to a rear yard, where the victim, 35-year-old Brian Sanchez, was found with a single gunshot wound to the chest, investigators said. Efforts by officers and paramedics to revive him were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Sanchez’s father and sister told FOX 5 News that he was helping a woman collect rent from a man who rented a trailer on the property. That man, 55-year-old Michael Hemphill, was questioned by police.
Hemphill was arrested and booked into Vista jail on suspicion of murder, police said.
