Shooting in El Cajon
On 3/28/13 at about 9:23 AM, the El Cajon Police Department responded to a report of shots fired in the 1300 block of East Main St.
The preliminary investigation at this point indicates an off-duty security guard interrupted a possible vehicle burglary or carjacking. During the incident, the owner of the vehicle was also involved and an altercation ensued. At some point during the altercation, the vehicle owner fired a handgun, striking and killing the suspect.
