An overnight shooting in San Diego’s Skyline area left a 23-year-old victim dead on a sidewalk and a second man critically wounded, the San Diego Police Department confirmed.

Homicide detectives say fatal shots were fired in the 7800 block of Bloomfield Road at around 3 a.m. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 23-year-old man lying on the sidewalk, suffering from a gunshot wound.

The man was taken to a local hospital, but died a short time later, officials confirmed.

As officers secured the scene at Skyline, they learned a second victim – a 21-year-old man – had been dropped off at another hospital with critical gunshot wounds. That victim remains hospitalized and in critical condition.

Investigators say there was a large gathering held at a home in the 7700 block of Bloomfield Road when a verbal argument broke out among several people at the gathering.

During the altercation, a suspect pulled out a gun and shot both victims.

The names of the victims have not yet been released. Police have not released a shooting suspect description.
