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.
