SDPD still investigating deadly Pacific Beach shooting

Pacific Beach (KUSI) – Police Saturday arrested two men in connection with the shooting death of a 44-year-old man at a home in the Pacific Beach community of San Diego, a police lieutenant said.

Paul Weinberger, 50, and Freddy Sosa, 37, were arrested after investigators followed leads gathered by the initial investigating officers, San Diego police Lt. Matt Dobbs said.

“Weinberger lived in the residence where the homicide occurred,” Dobbs said.

Officers dispatched at 1:47 a.m. to a home in the 2300 block of Wilbur Avenue regarding a possible shooting found the victim suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, he said. The victim’s name has not been released.

Paramedics rushed the man to area hospital, where he died from his injuries at 2:30 a.m., Dobbs said.

“We do know there were several other residents and occupants in the residence at the time of the incident,” he said. “The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle belonging to one of them.”

The vehicle has not yet been recovered and, as the investigation continues, it is possible more arrests will be made, Dobbs said.

The vehicle is described as a white 2015 Lexus RX350 with California plate numbers 7NWK357, he said. “The occupants are considered armed and dangerous,” Dobbs said.

The San Diego Police Department’s Homicide Unit asked anyone with information regarding the death to call  (619) 531-2293.  Anyone who sees the car should keep their distance and call 911.
