LEMON GROVE—Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a shooting that left two men injured at a Lemon Grove home, a deputy spokesman said today.

Deputies say two male suspects were last seen leaving south on Calle Simpson towards Weighorst Way in a black four-door sedan. Upon arrival at the residence, deputies contacted the residents and located a 25 year-old victim, whose face and head were covered in blood. The victim’s 52 year-old father, was also suffering from injuries and was bleeding from his right eye.

Deputies learned the victim had been standing in the driveway of his home waiting for his girlfriend, when he was approached by a Hispanic male, about 5 feet 11 inches, 160 pounds wearing a black beanie, blue hoodie sweatshirt and gray pants. The victim got into physical altercation with this suspect and a second suspect stepped out of a parked black four-door sedan and walked toward them. The suspect pulled out a gun and pointed it at the victim.

When he heard a gun shot, the victim’s father ran outside and engaged in a struggle with suspects.The victim’s 52-year-old mother then came outside and attempted to assist her husband, who was now grappling with one of the suspects.

Once the suspects realized deputies had been called, they fled the scene leaving behind numerous items of physical evidence. Initial reports are the first victim sustained a wound to his head. It is undetermined if the injury was related to the discharge of the firearm. The victim’s father also sustained minor injuries to his right eye. Both were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The suspects’ whereabouts are unknown.
