Victim identified in fatal shooting at house party

SAN DIEGO -- A man was fatally shot early Saturday while attending a house party in the Logan Heights area, and police were trying to determine if two other men who showed up at a hospital with gunshot wounds were injured in the same shooting.

Officers responded at 12:50 a.m. to a "gunshots heard" call in the 2700 block of Marcy Avenue and found a teenager with gunshot wounds to his upper body, San Diego Police Lt. Martha Sainz said.

The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Lamonte R. Stevenson.

Police said Stevenson got into an altercation with an unknown male suspect, who then shot him several times and fled.

Paramedics took Stevenson to an area hospital, where he died from his gunshot wounds, Sainz said.

A short time later, police "learned that two males were being treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds," Sainz said. "We're not sure if they were related or not. We do know there was a party at the location."

It was unclear how many people may have been involved in the Marcy Avenue shooting. A suspect description was not immediately available.

San Diego police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call 619-531-2000 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
