A woman was killed and a man was wounded in a shooting near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry between the U.S.-Mexico border early Monday, the San Diego Police Department said.
A spokesperson for U.S. Customs and Border Protection said two wounded people arrived at the border crossing near San Diego just before 5 a.m.
San Diego police believe the shooting happened on the Mexico side of the U.S.-Mexico border. Then, the two victims walked through the border crossing to the U.S. side, SDPD Officer Sarah Foster said.
Both victims were taken to a hospital for treatment, the officer said. The woman was pronounced dead and the man was hospitalized with unknown injuries.
Their ages were not immediately available. NBC 7 was working to determine if the individuals were U.S. citizens.
Police said U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the U.S. Department of State are investigating the incident.
