Homicide detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of a 34-year-old man in Ramona on Sunday.

The shooting at a home in the 1300 block of Walnut Street occurred about 3 p.m. Sept. 16, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Giannantonio.

The man went to the home and got into an argument with the homeowner, who told investigators the man was a stranger to him, the homicide lieutenant said in a statement.

As the man and the homeowner fought, the homeowner’s adult son grabbed a gun from the home and ordered the man to leave at gunpoint, Giannantonio said, adding that a struggle for the weapon ensued.

“The man was shot by the homeowner,” Giannantonio said.

Medics airlifted the man to Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, where he later died. His name was not released by the time the Sentinel went to press on Tuesday afternoon.

The homeowner and his son were cooperating with investigators and no arrests had been made, Giannantonio said outside the home on Monday.

    This to me sounds like a perfect example of a case of self defence or an accident because this man was intent on taking the gun away from this homeowner. so think about it, would you let a crazed person who came on to you property, Threatened you family, wouldn't leave when asked several times, started a fight with you and one of your sons, then when your other son shows up and asks him to leave at gun point he tries to take the gun. Now just saying he got the gun from the homeowner what do you think he may have done with that weapon, maybe kill the homeowner or one of his sons? Hell I would have shot the guy way before that, you see in Oklahoma if a person comes on to you property, and threatens you to the point you feel your life is in danger, you can shoot them without worrying about the law spinning it around. It's called "The Make My Day Law" and in other states they have whats known as The Castle Doctrine which states you have the right to use deadly force against anyone who you feel is threatening your life or the life of your family. I hope this homeowner walks without any legal problems, this man has already changed this families life forever.

    Bottom line a person came onto private property, was asked to leave , started a fight, still wouldn't leave when asked at gunpoint, then tried to take the gun and was shot and killed, sounds to me like the right person was shot and killed, let this family be, sounds like they've been through enough.
