Police responded to a report of gunfire at about 1:30 p.m. at Mountain View Park, Officer Dino Delimitros said. The park is near the intersection of Ocean View Boulevard and 40th Street in the Mountain View neighborhood.

Responding officers discovered two men, 33 and 37 years old, with gunshot wounds to their chests, San Diego police Lt. Anthony Dupree said. Both victims were taken to the hospital, where they later died. The names of the two men were withheld, pending notification of next of kin.

Detectives said the victims were standing in the 500 block of South 40th St., when the attacker, described as a male wearing dark clothing, walked up to the two men and started shooting, Dupree said.

No other suspect information was immediately available.

Anyone with information on these homicides was asked to call the homicide unit at (619) 531-2293. Tipsters can also call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
