SAN DIEGO – A 17-year-old boy was arrested Tuesday afternoon after gunshots were fired after a fight outside a popular sandwich shop near Kearny High School, police said.

At least five shots were fired in the 7600 block of Linda Vista Road, police said. The shooting took place around 4:30 p.m. According to officers, the three people involved in the fight were between the ages 17 and 20.

“The fist fight moved into the sandwich store where it was basically just a verbal back and forth. One victim stayed inside and then two left,” Lt. Andra Brown, with the San Diego Police Department, said.

About five minutes later Lt. Brown said one of the guys, armed with a gun, stood outside the sandwich shop and opened fire. At least one of the bullets shattered a window of K Sandwiches. A bystander was injured by flying glass, investigators said. The extent of the victim's injuries were not immediately clear.

Officers told FOX 5 two of the young men involved in the fight are believed to be a current and former student of Kearny High School, which is two blocks from the shooting scene.

One juvenile suspect was arrested, but the other young people involved in the fight ran off, police said.

Detectives said they are investigating this as an attempted murder.

K Sandwiches announced on Facebook the store will be opening around 8 a.m. Wednesday.
