One man was fatally shot and another man was wounded in a shooting at a College Area apartment, police said Thursday.
The shooting was reported shortly before 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Aztec Pacific Apartments on Montezuma Road, near El Cajon Boulevard, according to San Diego police.
Officers arrived at the scene and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds inside an apartment, Lt. Matt Dobbs said.
One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene and the other man was taken to a hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery, Dobbs said. An update on his status was not immediately available.
Neither victim has been identified as of Thursday morning, but both men were believed to be in their 20s, the lieutenant said.
Witnesses told investigators they saw two young men jumping a fence and running from the scene just after the shots were fired, Dobbs said.
A detailed description of those men was not immediately available and the circumstances leading up to the shooting were under investigation.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call SDPD’s homicide unit at 619-531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000.
