SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- One person was killed and another injured during a shooting in the College Area Wednesday night.

According to San Diego police, the shooting happened at the Aztec Pacific Apartments on the 6600 block of Montezuma Road around 7:30 p.m.

Responding officers found two people inside an apartment unit with gunshot wounds. One of the victims died at the scene, while another was taken to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery, police said.

SDPD Lt. Matt Dobbs said the victims were two men in their 20s. Their identities have yet to be released.

Dobbs said officers received a burglary call but could not say if that was an accurate description, adding there were no signs of forced entry. An investigation as to what led up to the shooting is under investigation.

"At this point, it is very early in the investigation, but what we do know is that there were two black males jumping a fence and running from the scene shortly after the shots were fired," Dobbs said.

Dobbs said the victims did not live at the apartment where they were found wounded.

However, there were two other people in the apartment, and police are questioning them.

They are still determining who lives at the residence.
