Residents and activists gathered in southeast San Diego streets Tuesday in honor of a shooting victim killed near a trolley stop in San Diego's Encanto community.
The deadly shooting was reported around 1:35 p.m. in front of the CashCo Pawn Shop in the 6200 block of Imperial Avenue, across the street from the Encanto Trolley Station at 62nd and Akins streets. A 25-year-old man died and a second shooting victim was taken to the hospital.
Nearly a week after the incident, Reverend Shane Harris, the victim's family and residents of southeastern San Diego gathered at Imperial Avenue to raise awareness about the crime happening in their community.
A Peace March would have gone from 62nd Street and Imperial to the end of the Boys and Girls Club on Imperial, but was abruptly canceled.
No further details, including a motive for the shooting, were immediately released.
NBC 7 spoke with one witness who said she heard the gunshots ring out.
"I walked down there, I [saw] the one guy dead, with blood all over him. And the other guy suffering with blood all over him," the witness said. "I think it's absolutely horrible. It's terrible."
