A Vista man who befriended a fellow marijuana user reported being robbed by his new acquaintance in Vista on Thursday, San Diego County sheriff's investigators said.
Officers were called to the 1200 block of Buena Vista Drive shortly before 6 p.m. to investigate a report of a home burglary with shots being fired, Sgt. Art Wager said.
The victim, 32, told authorities he met "Phil" on Tuesday at the "Cal Med 420 Medical Marijuana Dispensary" on Rosecrans in San Diego.
He invited the man to come to his home in Vista to smoke the weed, which the victim said he needs to use for unspecified medical problems.
The victim told investigators that when he went to his bedroom to get his pot, his "guest" pulled a handgun and fired off a shot that missed him, but lodged in the wall, Wager said.
After "Phil" ordered him to the ground and demanded the man's medical stash, a second man arrived and began demanding "the money," Wager said.
The victim told authorities he begged for his life and handed over his cash. They also took an unspecified amount of marijuana and a bong.
The suspects in the case should considered armed and dangerous, Wager said.
The first suspect is described as an African American man in his early 30s, about six feet tall, with a thin build and having a mustache and goatee. His victim knows him only as "Phil".
The second suspect is an unknown age, African American, with a heavy build and wearing what could have been a Chargers jersey.
