SAN DIEGO -- A woman was killed and two others were injured in a shooting Wednesday evening at a fast-food restaurant in Otay Mesa West.

A family member and later San Diego police identified the Church's Chicken employee who was killed in the shooting as 28-year-old Maribel Ibañez.

Two other employees were wounded in the shooting, San Diego police said. One of the victims was treated for his wounds and released. The other victim remained in stable condition as of Thursday night.

The shooting happened around 5:30 p.m. at Church's Chicken in the 3700 block of Del Sol Boulevard, near Picador Boulevard.

Investigators said the gunman tried to pay for a meal using a counterfeit bill. When he was unsuccessful, he returned to the restaurant and opened fire on employees.

Police are still looking for the gunman, who was described as an African-American man, about 6' tall with a thin build and in his 30s. He was wearing a blue Chargers beanie, a light blue sweatshirt and basketball shorts. He was last seen driving a dark blue sedan northbound on Picador Boulevard.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to raise funds for Ibañez's funeral.
