PARADISE HILLS (San Diego) – June 29, 2019
On June 29, 2019, at approximately 12:58 a.m., the San Diego Police Department Communications Center received a 911 call regarding a shooting in the 6200 block of Childs Avenue. Patrol officers arrived on scene a few minutes later and found a 20 year-old male down in the driveway of a residence, with a family member performing CPR. The officers immediately assisted with the life-saving efforts until they were relieved by San Diego Fire-Rescue personnel. Unfortunately, the victim did not survive his injuries and was pronounced deceased at 1:07 a.m. The victim had suffered at least one apparent gunshot wound. As the patrol officers were securing the scene, they were contacted by residents in the area who had heard what they believed were gunshots and noticed some suspicious activity. Based on the information provided by the residents, three people were detained for questioning (an adult male and female, and a male juvenile).
Investigators from the Homicide Unit were called to the scene to conduct the investigation. Although it is still early in the investigation, we have learned the subjects that were detained were likely at the scene of the shooting. Investigators will be interviewing them to determine their involvement in the incident.
Although the loss of any life is a tragedy, this case is a good illustration of the partnership between the community and law enforcement. The cooperation of the community members will greatly assist in determining what occurred, and helping to provide closure for the victim’s family.
The victim has been identified, but his name is not being released at this time.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
