A woman was shot dead and a 12-year-old child was shot and injured following an argument at an apartment complex in Lincoln Park on Saturday morning.
At approximately 2:15 a.m., San Diego police officers responded to the 300 block of South Willie James Jones Avenue following a call for a shooting. Once they arrived, they found a 31-year-old woman who had multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body and a 12-year-old boy with a gunshot wound to his right leg, Lt. Steve Shebloski said.
Police also found a man with upper body injuries. Police later determined that the three people were a family.
A 24-year-old man and a 22-year-old man, who appear to be brothers, have been arrested in connection with the shooting, police said. Police have a third person of interest, but the investigation is ongoing.
According to the police, it appears that those involved are neighbors. Some sort of argument broke out early in the morning and that’s when the shooting happened.
The cause of the fight is under investigation by the police. There are no outstanding suspects.
The 22-year-old sustained a gunshot wound to his right hand and was taken to a local hospital. The 12-year-old and the man, who suffered upper body injuries, were also taken to a local hospital.
The 31-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Shebloski said.
Homicide investigators are on the scene.
