Chula Vista- Man Dead And 2 People Seriously Injured In A Shooting In A Costco Store
A man shot his ex-girlfriend and the ex-girlfriend’s current boyfriend in the parking lot of a Costco store in Chula Vista on Monday, June 17, 2019. The couple was putting groceries into their car outside a Costco store in Chula Vista at 1130 Broadway a few minutes before 1 pm. The woman’s baby was placed in a stroller next to the couple when the woman’s ex-boyfriend came up to the couple and started an argument. While the man was fighting with the couple, he pulled out a gun and shot the woman and her current boyfriend several times at close range. Afterwards, the shooter shot himself. The baby, though, was not injured. The 2 men and the woman were taken to UCSD Medical Center. The shooter was declared dead a few minutes before 2 pm. The other man and the woman underwent surgery for the wounds they sustained. They were reported to be in critical condition. The identities of the shooter and the victims were not known.
