Two teenagers were injured, one in a shooting and the other in a stabbing, in the community of Nestor Friday night. San Diego police are working to determine if the two attacks are related.
The first victim, a 16-year-old boy, was shot in the right thigh around 11:40 p.m. while near the bus stop on Oro Vista Road south of Iris Avenue.
The victim wouldn’t provide any additional information about the attack, according to authorities. He was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
Shortly after, Chula Vista police notified officers in San Diego of a 19-year-old man who had been allegedly stabbed in the neck at an apartment complex near the bus stop earlier that night.
Two of the young man’s companions brought him to a hospital, but refused to provide investigators with details about the incident, police said.
Because of the 19-year-old’s condition, he was unable to say what happened, according to police. He was later taken to UC San Diego Medical Center in Hillcrest for emergency surgery and is expected to survive.
San Diego police could not confirm whether the two incidents were related. The police department’s Southern Division is investigating.
