John Reed Obituary, Death – SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – The San Diego Police Department has revealed the name of the person who was murdered in the shooting that took place on L Street in the Gaslamp Quarter on Friday. The incident occurred on Friday afternoon. At approximately 4:25 in the morning, the event took place in the central business sector of San Diego, which is located on the 600 block of L Street. The deceased, who has been identified as John Reed, 29, was located resting on the sidewalk in the 300 block of Seventh Avenue suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper torso, according to the police. The victim was found on the 300 block of Seventh Avenue. On the three hundred block of Seventh Avenue was where the victim was found. It was determined that he had passed away at the scene.
Officers made the discovery that the suspect, who was later identified as 20-year-old Dajon Shingleton, was a member of the gang that escaped the scene in a white Jeep SUV, while two other suspects sped away into a neighboring multi-story parking garage. A portion of the group fled the scene in a white Jeep SUV, while the other two suspects ran into an adjacent parking garage that had numerous levels. Both locations were within close proximity to each other.
After being stopped in a Jeep that matched the description, three people—two ladies and a man—were taken into custody by police authorities. The Jeep was discovered nearby at 300 5th Avenue. They were eventually allowed to leave. The police first held a second individual who they believed to be a member of the suspect gang since he was wandering nearby and perhaps involved in the crime; however, he was eventually released as well.
On Friday, as they were conducting their investigation into the incident, the police cordoned off the area around it for a significant amount of time. A possible suspect was thought to be hiding out in a nearby parking garage, so the local SWAT team was called in to conduct a search there. After a few hours had passed, it was determined that the suspects had not been discovered and that there was no longer any danger to the public as a result. As a result, the parking garage was made safe for the public to use once again.
In order to assist with the investigation, Homicide Detectives from the San Diego Police Department were requested to participate. They discovered that Reed had gotten into a brief altercation with Shingleton and members of his group somewhere in the vicinity of the 600 block of L Street. During the middle of the argument, Shingleton pulled out a pistol and shot Reed in the upper torso at least once. Reed was hit by the bullet. Reed sustained an injury. The San Diego Police Department claims that he passed away at the location.
