1 dead, another wounded in Mountain View-area shooting near market


SAN DIEGO – Two people were shot Monday, one fatally, in a Mountain View-area neighborhood.

The gunfire in the 3600 block of Ocean View Boulevard was reported shortly after 3:30 p.m., according to San Diego police. Upon arrival, patrol officers found a 34-year-old man on the sidewalk near Mike’s Market with at least one apparent gunshot wound to his upper body, San Diego police Lt. Andra Brown said in a news release, at which time crews attempted to render first aid and CPR to him.

The man, whose name was not released by police, was taken to a local hospital, but he was pronounced dead a short time later, Brown said.

A second person wounded in the shooting showed up at a hospital later for treatment of injuries of undisclosed severity, City News Service reported. Their name also was not released.

Investigations are attempting to determine the circumstances of the shooting, according to Brown. She said detectives learned a group had been in the parking lot of the market before the shooting and that a light-colored car driving westbound appeared to have fired “several rounds” at the group.

That car is believed by police to have continued traveling westbound on Ocean View Boulevard.

No descriptions of the shooter or shooters were immediately available, and no suspects in the case were in custody, Brown said.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the department’s Homicide Unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
