LAKESIDE, Calif. — A woman was injured Sunday in a brief shootout between her boyfriend and deputies on the Barona Indian Reservation, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies arrived at a residence in the 4000 block of Capitan Grande north of Lakeside around 8.20pm to investigate a reported domestic incident involving a man and a woman. They were outside the residence talking with the woman when her boyfriend, Gianni Oliver, 23, came out and started shooting at the officers, according to Sheriff’s Lt. Thomas Seiver. A sergeant and four deputies fired back at Oliver, Seiver said.

Oliver’s girlfriend, whom Seiver did not identify, was injured in the shooting. She was treated in hospital for her injuries and discharged.

Homicide detectives were investigating how the woman was shot and Oliver’s motivation for shooting the deputies, Seiver said.

None of the sheriff’s deputies were injured.
