Officials are seeking the public's help in identifying four suspects in a double fatal parking lot shooting in Colina Del Sol.
The shooting happened at 12:18 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1 when three victims and another adult woman were driving through a parking lot. The car stopped next to a group of men standing near a light pole and suddenly, police said, a verbal confrontation of some sort occurred and one man walked up to the group and fired several shots.
Deon Fontaine Peterson, 27, and Joseph Anthony Ponder, 26, both of Oceanside, were identified as two of the men in the car. They suffered fatal gunshot wounds to their upper bodies and were pronounced dead on scene.
Another woman, who has not yet been identified, was taken to Mercy Hospital, and her wounds were considered non-life threatening. A fourth person in the car was not injured.
The suspects fled the scene before police arrived, but investigators are now asking for help in identifying four people based off detailed descriptions.
