On Monday, May 4, at 9:31 p.m., our Communications Center received several 911 calls regarding a shooting that had just occurred in the 900 block of Orange Avenue. Officers arrived on scene and found one victim on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a San Diego area hospital

At this point in the investigation, it appears the 18-year-old male victim had arranged to meet the suspects to sell jewelry over an internet app which pairs buyers and sellers. At some point in the transaction, the suspects grabbed the jewelry and shot the victim as they ran off. The suspects are still outstanding. The investigation is ongoing.

The suspects are being described as:

Suspect 1: Hispanic male adult, 20’s, heavy build, curly dark hair, last seen wearing a blue sweatshirt and baggy pants.

Suspect 2: Hispanic male adult, 20’s, observed by witnesses removing articles of clothing. No additional information at this time.

The Coronado Police Department is asking business owners in the area who may have surveillance footage to give us a call at 619-522-7350.
