Viejas shooting victim identified as Alpine resident

A man who was fatally shot on the Viejas Indian Reservation on Tuesday has been identified as Alpine resident Lorenzo Alejandro Rodriguez.


Angela Meza, 47, was jailed on suspicion of murder in Rodriguez’ death.

A woman called 911 about 6:35 p.m. to report a possibly suicidal man at a home on Viejas Grade Road near Willows Road. Deputies found Rodriguez, 42, with a gunshot wound to his torso. He died at the house.

Witness accounts of what happened didn’t match with the evidence homicide detectives found, sheriff’s Lt. Greg Rylaarsdam said. They arrested Meza the next morning.

Meza had been at the house when investigators got there Tuesday night, Rylaarsdam said.
