SAN DIEGO - Five people were stabbed and three other people were shot during two, separate unrelated house parties in San Diego, a police officer said Sunday.
A dispute spilled out into the street from a party attended by at least 100 people about 11 p.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of Howard Avenue, said San Diego police officer Dino Delimitros.
A suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed five people. None of the wounds were considered life threatening, Delimitros said.
The stabbing suspect was described as a Hispanic male who was 16 to 18 years old. He had a thin build and was wearing a black jacket and red hat, Delimitros said.
At about the same time, in the 200 block of South Pardee Street, a gang-related argument escalated into a shooting. One of the people in a group that had left the party returned with a gun, issued a gang challenge, pulled out a gun and shot three people, he said.
The victims ranged in age from 16 to 22 years old. None of the gunshot wounds were considered life-threatening, the officer said.
The shooting suspect was described as a heavyset Hispanic man who was 16 to 25 years old, Delimitros said.
