Three found dead inside Spring Valley home identified

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — The shooting deaths of two men and a woman at an apartment complex near Sweetwater Lane Community Park last week were a double murder and a suicide, a sheriff’s official confirmed Tuesday.

Deputies responding to reports of gunfire in the 1100 block of Jamacha Lane in Spring Valley shortly after 1 p.m. Friday arrived to find Terrence Andrada, 55, just inside the front door of a rental residence in the neighborhood, suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest, Lt. Kenn Nelson said.

Medics took Andrada to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Inside the apartment, patrol personnel discovered the bodies of Jamal Richardson, 23, and 34-year-old Tomomi Takahashi-Demetruk. Both had suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Investigators determined that Andrada killed Richardson and Takahashi-Demetruk before turning the gun on himself, Nelson said.

Authorities have disclosed no suspected motive for the shootings. The exact relationships among the victims and the alleged killer were unclear, though neighbors told reporters Andrada was the landlord of the complex where the slayings took place.
