Shelter-in-place lifted for Mira Mesa neighborhood after fatal shooting

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A shelter-in-place for a Mira Mesa-neighborhood was lifted Tuesday afternoon after a SWAT team search for suspects in a Monday night fatal shooting turned up empty.

A SWAT team was called in to the 8500 block of Menkar Road near Harlow Terrace — where a suspect was believed to be — before 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, San Diego police said. Residents were asked to stay indoors while authorities conducted a search of the area overnight. The shelter-in-place directive was lifted, SDPD public-affairs Sgt. Lisa McKean said.

An 18-year-old man showed up at Sharp Memorial Hospital Monday night with what was ultimately a fatal gunshot wound. Employees at the hospital on Frost Street in the Birdland area alerted police shortly before 9 p.m. Monday, San Diego police said.

It was not immediately known exactly where the shooting took place. Police do not believe the shooting to be gang-related.

There were no reports of arrests in the case as of 11 a.m., the sergeant said.
