Authorities release name of man shot in home altercation Sunday

Authorities on Friday identified a 34-year-old man who was fatally shot following an altercation with a Ramona homeowner over the weekend.

Shane M. Tatro of Ramona went to a home in the 1300 block of Walnut Street about 3 p.m. Sunday and got into an argument with the homeowner, who told investigators the man was a stranger to him, according to San Diego County sheriff’s Lt. Glenn Giannantonio.

As the argument turned physical, the homeowner’s adult son got involved, grabbed a gun from the home and ordered Tatro to leave at gunpoint, Giannantonio said.

A struggle for the weapon ensued and Tatro was allegedly shot by the homeowner, the lieutenant said.

Medics flew him to Palomar Medical Center, where he died shortly before 7 p.m. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office listed Tatro’s cause of death as a shotgun wound to the abdomen.

Giannantonio said in a statement Monday the homeowners were cooperating with investigators and no arrests had been made.
