Woman Suspected of Killing Man in Alpine Arrested

Sheriff's Homicide detectives arrested a woman suspected of killing a 42-year-old man in Alpine.

"During our investigation we were able to determine that he was actually murdered there," said Greg Rylaarsdam, a lieutenant with the San Diego County Sheriff homicide detail.

Angela Meza, 47, was arrested in connection with the death of a man, whose body was found by deputies with fatal gunshot wounds inside a house, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

Just after 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, deputies received a call of a suicidal man at Viejas Grade in Alpine. When they arrived at the scene, they found the man's unconscious body and requested emergency crews.

Paramedics tried to perform life-saving measures but the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meza was booked into the Las Colinas Detention and Reentry Facility on a suspected murder charge, confirmed deputies.

An autopsy will be conducted by the Medical Examiner's Office to determine the victim's cause of death and identity.

Sheriff's detectives are continuing to investigate this case.
