Authorities want to speak to the person of interest, who is the man shown in the image below:
The shooting police are investigating occurred on Aug. 26 around 6:43 a.m., when a 26-year-old victim was shot in the leg at 670 Oxford Street, Sgt. Anthony Molina with the Chula Vista Police Department stated in a release Wednesday. The victim was surrounded by a group of four to six juveniles who then ran southbound toward Palomar Trolley Station, a caller reported to police.
A few minutes later, another caller reported a 33-year-old victim suffering from multiple gunshot and stab wounds in front of a business in the 600 block of Palomar Street, authorities said.
Both victims, believed to be unsheltered homeless living in Harborside Park, were taken to a local hospital where their injuries were apparently non-life-threatening.
Harborside Elementary School was placed on a brief lockdown after the first shooting, which was later lifted after determining there was no threat to the school or surrounding community.
Police, however, arrested three suspects at the Park & Market Trolley station, Molina said. There are other individuals believed to be a part of the group involved in the shootings.
