CAMPO, Calif. (KGTV) -- San Diego County Sheriff investigators are on the scene of a deputy-involved shooting that occurred just before noon on Sunday.
A man called 911 from a home on the 2500 block of Gladiola Drive in Campo, saying he was suicidal and had a gun, according to the Sheriff's Department.
Shortly after deputies surrounded the home, they heard a gunshot. Moments later, a man appeared at the front door, holding the gun. There was a brief confrontation between the man and deputies which led one deputy to fire a single round, according to Sheriff's Lt. Keith Nelson. The man went back into the home.
A Sheriff's Special Enforcement Detail entered the home and found the man dead of an apparent gunshot wound. It is unclear if the wound was self-inflicted or the result of the earlier confrontation with deputies.
The name of the 66-year-old man was not released. The medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine how he died.
