    One man is dead and another is in custody after a deadly shooting at an East County RV Park.

    Sheriff's deputies responded to reports of a gunshot victim in the middle of the Ma Tar Awa Viejas RV Park at 25 Browns and Cross Oaks Owl roads at 4:13 p.m. Sunday.

    According to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, neighbors Leland Clyde, 73, and Jock Martin, 56, got into an argument. Officials said Clyde shot Martin, killing him.

    Martin’s brother reportedly came over after hearing gunshots, and Clyde pointed the gun at him. Officials said Martin’s brother escaped and called for help.

    The sheriff’s ASTREA helicopter flew over the campground and ordered the suspect to get on the ground. Clyde was taken into custody on suspicion of murder.

    An air ambulance was initially ordered to help transport the victim, but it was called off when he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to deputies.
