1 Dead, 2 Injured After Triple Shooting in Jamacha-Lomita

One person was killed and two were seriously injured after a triple shooting at a home in San Diego's Jamacha-Lomita neighborhood, according to San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Homicide Lt. Mike Holden. 

Police first responded to a report of a shooting Saturday around 4:30 p.m. at the house located at Armacost Road and Woodrow Avenue.

Inside the house, officers found a 26-year-old man, a 39-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man. Each had multiple gunshot wounds to their bodies. All three were taken to a local hospital.

The 26-year-old was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 39-year-old is in critical condition and the 47-year-old is expected to survive his injuries. 

"She's a great, wonderful mother," Daesha Hatchett, aunt to the 39-year-old victim tells NBC 7. "She's got quite a few beautiful daughters and she attends ... church. She's a great person, and so I'm just shocked that this happened ... She's currently at Scripps Hospital in ICU. She's still with us praise God."

The scene is still active and detectives are investigating. Investigators do not believe there are any outstanding suspects at this time. 

All three victims have been identified, but their names have not been released yet pending notification of family.
