The San Diego Sheriff’s Department on Sunday identified the two men found dead Friday in an apparent murder-suicide in Santee.

Daniel Wayne Isaac, 42, was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his vehicle in the 8700 block of Diamondback Drive.

Deputies stopped Isaac’s vehicle at 7:20 p.m. Friday after reports of shots fired nearby. When they approached the stopped vehicle, they found him mortally wounded.

Fire department personnel tried to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

“As the vehicle stop was being conducted, additional deputies responded to the location of the shooting,” Seiver said. “When they arrived, they found a man in a garage who had been shot.”

That victim, identified as 36-year-old Wesley Aaron Devault of San Diego, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving, the lieutenant said.

The sheriff’s homicide unit is investigating both shootings.
