A woman was killed Saturday afternoon and the suspect was in custody after several shots were reportedly fired in an Alpine neighborhood, deputies said.
Gunfire was reported around 2:15 p.m. in the 2800 block of Victoria Drive, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. The Alpine sheriff’s substation received several calls about a man running around shooting a gun.
When deputies arrived they found a woman lying by the passenger side of a car in the driveway with multiple gunshot wounds, Lt. Rich Williams said.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.
The man was arrest about a half mile away and deputies found two handguns on him, the lieutenant said.
It unknown what the relationship between the victim and suspect was, he said. Both were not from the area.
Kim Kramer, who owns the house where the car was found, told NBC 7 she does not know who the dead woman is and does not know where the car came from. She never thought someone would be shot to death in her driveway.
“Not in my neighborhood, not at my house,” she said. “My grandkids are here all the time. I’m grateful they weren’t there (at the time of the shooting).”
Kramer was not home when the shooting happened. She received a call from deputies saying they needed to search her home as a precaution.
“I gave them my keys so they could go in and take a look at the house,” she said. “I don’t want to go and check the house but nobody was there so that’s a good thing.”
As of 11 p.m., Kramer was still not able to get back into her home and she’s hoping to get back in soon.
“I’m going to take my grandsons Bradley and Will to the globetrotters tomorrow,” she said. “I need my tickets.”
Anyone with any information about the shooting was urged to contact the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit at(858) 285-6330, after hours at (858) 565-5200, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
