Man killed in shooting after argument at South Bay home


CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A man died at the hospital after police say he was shot following a noisy argument at a South Bay home Friday.

The shooting happened around 1:30 p.m., according to the Chula Vista Police Department, who were called out to a house on Agua Tibia Avenue near L Street, west of Interstate 805.
