Two women and a man were found dead in a Lakeside home after an apparent double murder-suicide Friday night, sheriff’s officials said.
The incident was first reported as an assault with a deadly weapon on the Interstate 8 Business Loop near Los Coches Road. When deputies arrived, they learned a man might have shot a woman during an argument, sheriff’s homicide Lt. Chris Steffen said.
A Special Enforcement Detail entered the home and found the three victims, all in their late 50s, the lieutenant said. The trio was not identified.
Investigators believe the man fatally shot both women before turning the gun on himself, Steffen said. It is unclear what led to the killings.
Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call investigators at (858) 285-6330 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (888) 580-8477.
