VISTA, Calif. — A woman was hospitalized Saturday after being shot in the parking lot of a Shell gas station in Vista, sheriff’s deputies said.
Deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Dept. responded at about 6:15 a.m. to the 400 block of Sycamore Avenue after receiving a 911 call. Upon arrival, Lt. Thomas Seiver of the department’s Homicide Unit told OnScene.TV deputies found an adult woman in her vehicle who had been shot.
The woman was transported to a local hospital, Seiver said. Due to the gravity of the woman’s injuries, the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit “responded and assumed responsibility of the investigation,” the department said in a news release.
Not much has been publicly shared about the woman’s identity. Seiver said investigators believe she was shot in the parking lot and still are searching for potential suspects.
