Man suspected of shooting ex-girlfriend, her current boyfriend turns himself in

ALPINE, Calif. - A 50-year-old man allegedly sneaked into a house in a rural canyon in Dehesa and opened fire on his former girlfriend and her current boyfriend, killing the man and wounding the woman, according to authorities.

The shooting was reported at 6:25 a.m. at 1525 S. Wilson Road, sheriff's officials said.

The house is southwest of Alpine just off Dehesa Road, about midway between Harbison Canyon and Tavern Road.

Deputies arrived to the home to find family members performing CPR on Eufracio Alberto Enriquez, 35, and took over. He died at the scene, sheriff's Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said.

Leila Jane Farmer, 39, was taken to a hospital for treatment of gunshot wound to her arm, Giannantonio said. The wound was not believed to be life-threatening.

Giannantonio said Farmer and Enriquez awoke to find Farmer's ex-boyfriend, Abel Angel Martinez, inside the home. It was unclear how he gained entry.

Some words were exchanged and Martinez allegedly drew a handgun and shot Enriquez, then Farmer, Giannantonio said. He then drove off.

Martinez turned himself in at the sheriff's department substation in Alpine about four hours after the shooting.

Giannantonio said Martinez would be booked into the San Diego Central Jail on suspicion of murder and attempted murder.
