Colina Del Sol Shooting Victims Identified

The two victims in the shooting Saturday evening in a Colina del Sol shopping center were identified Sunday.

Dionte Floyd, 31, was killed in the shooting that happened just before 6 p.m. in the parking lot of Aztec Liquor located at 5225 El Cajon Blvd. near 52nd Street, according to the San Diego Police Department. The area is home to a small shopping center that also includes a pho restaurant. 

Dashe Wallace, 38, was also wounded in the shooting but was expected to recover, Lt. Anthony Dupree said.

A fight broke out between two groups of men before the shooting started, he said.

Responding officers found Floyd and Wallace on the ground with gunshot wounds in the upper body and administered first aid until paramedics arrive and took over, the lieutenant said.

Floyd died of his wounds at the hospital, Dupree said.

It was unknown how many shots were fired.

"We have several witnesses were are talking to — a lot of witnesses to be exact," Dupree said. "We're still working through the scene."

The motive for the shooting is unknown. Police were looking for suspects wearing dark clothing.

On Sunday morning, more than 12 hours after the deadly shooting, investigators we still at the scene collecting evidence, including bullet casings scattered around the parking lot.

The investigation was ongoing. The shopping center where this happened is busy, so police said there were several witnesses.

Anyone with any information about the shooting is urged to call SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
