Rifle-toting deputies searched a dirt trail behind homes in Julian following the report of a shooting.
San Diego County sheriff’s deputies said a man who had been shot through the neck made his way to a call box along State Route 78 around 8:30 a.m. Thursday.
A passing driver stopped and took the man to Cal Fire officials said.
The shooting victim was transported to Palomar Hospital. Details on his condition are not available.
A news helicopter captured two deputies carrying high-powered rifles as they appeared to search a dirt trail behind two homes after the shooting was first reported.
Officials said they have since made two arrests. Jeffrey Roberson , 47, and 40-year-old Jennifer Minor were taken into custody.
Roberson was booked into the San Diego County Jail on one charge of Attempt Murder. Minor was booked into Las Colinas and charged with conspiracy.
The victim and suspects live along the private road Kentucky Mind Road. Officials said the land owner allows the three people involved to live on the property.
