Couple Dead After Murder-Suicide Shooting in  El Cajon

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department (SDSO) reports that a couple lost their lives in what appears to have been a murder-suicide shooting at an El Cajon apartment complex on Saturday afternoon.

At around 12:43 p.m., deputies responded to reports of gunfire in the 1600 block of Hilton Head Court.

When they arrived at the scene, they discovered a guy dead from what seemed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a lady with a gunshot wound. Sheriff’s officers reported finding a weapon close to the pair.

Once reaching the hospital, where she died later, medical professionals had taken her to.

The victims were Jose Benjamin Lopez Valle, 41, and Brenda Valle, 38, according to the SDSO. The couple’s children, ages eighteen, sixteen, and eleven, were unharmed under their care.

Sheriff’s officials stated that there was no threat to the community and that no outstanding suspects existed while the shooting investigation was ongoing.
