A shooting in Spring Valley Saturday has left five victims wounded, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and media reports.
The shooting occurred at 8 p.m. in the 9000 block of Ildica Street, east of state route 125.
In addition to the shooting victims, two juveniles were taken by paramedics to hospitals with what sheriff’s Lt. M. Krugh described as “minor burns.”
Officials later told media at the scene that the wounded individuals were in stable condition, and that those who suffered burns may have been hit by fireworks.
An outlet reported that a suspect was in custody, but a sheriff’s official later said during a media briefing that no one had been detained, though he added that investigators no longer believed there was a threat to the public.
The circumstances leading up to the shooting were not clear, but Krugh said it may have happened during a party.
