Police Arrest 2 Teens in Connection to Paradise Hills Shooting That Killed Man

Residents told police they heard gunshots and noticed some suspicious activity on the 6200 block of Childs Avenue just before the deadly shooting, San Diego police said

San Diego police arrested two teenagers in connection to a shooting that killed a 20-year-old man on a driveway in a Paradise Hills neighborhood, officers confirmed.

San Diego Police Department Lt. Matt Dobbs said the shooting happened just before 1 a.m. along the 6200 block of Childs Avenue, near Homedale Street.

When officers arrived, they found a young man, later identified as Tyshawn Powell, unresponsive in the driveway in front of a home. A family member was giving him CPR.

SDPD officers jumped in to try to revive Powell. He had suffered at least one gunshot wound and his injuries were critical.

He died at 1:07 a.m., police said.

As police were securing the scene of the deadly shooting, Dobbs said residents walked up to investigators and told them they had heard gunshots and noticed suspicious activity just before the man was killed.

Based on that information, Dobbs said three people were detained for questioning at the scene: 19 year-old Angelo Roshon Richardson Jr., 18 year-old Mikayla Ann Castillo, and a 17-year-old boy.

Richardson and Castillo were taken into custody for alleged murder and possession of a firearm, SDPD said.

The 17-year-old was released, and Castillo later posted bailed and was released.

Dobbs said this case is a good example of why community members should report any suspicious activity to law enforcement.

"The cooperation of the community members will greatly assist in determining what occurred, and helping to provide closure for the victim’s family," he said in a press release.

The victim’s name is not being released at this time, pending the ongoing investigation. Anyone with information on this shooting can call the SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
