SAN DIEGO — An 18-year-old man was shot and killed in the Mira Mesa neighborhood Wednesday morning, San Diego police said.

Around 9:30 a.m., police received calls about a shooting in the 10900 block of Deering Street, Lt. Judd Campbell told reporters at the scene. When officers arrived, they found a man had been shot in the street.

Police believe the victim was a resident in the area.

“I was in the backyard. I heard what sounded like two gunshots consecutive,” said Ron Butryn, a neighbor. “Relatively quick succession. Then all of a sudden, an army of police cars, fire engines and stuff start coming down the street a block over.” 

Lt. Campbell said they do not know yet the relationship between the victim and shooter, or what led up to the incident.

“We are not quite there yet on having the information, but we are working our way through it,” he explained. ‘And hopefully we can figure it out what happened, solve this and get justice.”

Detectives are gathering evidence and interviewing potential witnesses. Officials do not have the shooters description as of Wednesday afternoon.

Police are asking anyone with information on the shooting incident to contact the SDPD homicide unit at 858-285-6330 or contact Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
