A neighbor of the victim told 10News she was with her family when she heard the shots. They locked the doors to their truck and remained in their car.
“I cried a little, prayed a lot and tried to keep my family calm so it was hard seeing all that," said Vivian Newcomb. "Walking through there and seeing all that earlier so it’s something you won’t ever forget.”
The handgun used to commit the crime was also recovered at the crime scene. Rancho San Diego Detectives are handling the on-going investigation.
It's unclear what led to the shooting.
