Woman fatally shot in Point Loma grocery store parking lot

SAN DIEGO – A woman died after getting shot in a parking lot in Point Loma, police said Wednesday.

The woman and a man were standing in a Baron’s Market parking lot at 4013 West Point Loma Boulevard, according to San Diego police. The two people were heard arguing before the gunshot.

The unidentified woman was found on the ground as a black sedan sped east on W. Point Loma Boulevard around 11:45 p.m. She was taken to a hospital where she died, police said.

"The whole parking lot was taped off and there were police cars everywhere," said Dawn Defrancesco, who lives nearby. "It's a little scary. I walk my dog over here all the time and you never think something like that would happen."

Police were searching for the gunman described as a black man in his mid-30s wearing dark clothing.
