Detectives investigate shooting death

Homicide detectives are investigating the fatal shooting of a 34-year-old man at a home in the 1300 block of Walnut Street about 3 p.m. Sunday, 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 flew the man to Palomar Medical Center, where he later died. His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.

The homeowner and his son were cooperating with investigators and no arrests had been made as of early Monday, according to Giannantonio.
