VISTA, Calif. — San Diego County Sheriff’s deputies responded at a Vista apartment complex around 6:20 p.m. on Friday.
For an unknown reason, they shot and killed a man outside an open garage. What led up to the confrontation remains a mystery as investigators have not said why deputies open fire on the man. One woman who was nearby when the shooting happened said it was a very scary situation.
“We had just put down the groceries when we heard several shots, we ducked down… looked out the window and saw deputies, within two minutes all these squad cars showed up and cordoned off the area, said Donna Milovitch, who is staying at an apartment about 50 feet from where the shooting took place.
The investigation is expected to last well into the night.
