Officer Robert Heims, San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Watch Commander, reported that both victims were rushed to the hospital with gunshot wounds, NBC News reported. While one of the victims declared dead, another is now being treated as a homicide investigation.

Police currently do not have any information about the suspect.

Meanwhile, SDPD announced on X (previously Twitter) that Nobel Drive will be closed for many hours in both directions between Genesee Avenue and Towne Centre Drive.

According to SDPD Officer Darius Jamsetjee, the scenario was contained to the street and did not involve an active shooter. “The mall is not involved,” the officer explained.

SDPD’s Homicide Unit is probing the incident.

Meanwhile, a resident Melissa Fulton, who was coming home from a bonfire, said shootings are not common in her neighborhood.

“It’s scary to think that there’s an active shooter situation over there,” she said, adding that police blocked off all access to her house as they have launched an investigation into the shooting.
