A 22-year-old was injured Sunday night in a deputy-involved shooting at the ticket window of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. Daniel Elizarraras of Escondido is in stable condition and is expected to survive, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Rich Williams said.
The shooting was just before 6:40p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, where rapper Ice Cube was scheduled to perform. Deputies say Elizarraras wanted to buy a ticket to the concert, but they were sold out.
San Diego County sheriff's spokeswoman Lt. Karen Stubkjaer says, "An argument ensued and nearby deputies responded. "The man pulled out a silver plated semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots into a crowded area. Deputies engaged and returned fire.''
There were no other injuries. The concert went on as scheduled.
