Updated at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 17

A person was found dead under suspicious circumstances at a residence in the 2100 block of Robertson Street in Ramona Monday morning, a sheriff's official reported.

The death was reported about 11:15 a.m., Lt. Kelly Martinez stated.

Deputies investigated, then called in homicide detectives. Authorities did not disclose why the death of the person, described only as "male," appeared suspicious. The decedent's name was not immediately available.

On Sunday afternoon, a man was fatally shot during a confrontation at a home about a half-mile north of the residence where this morning's fatality was reported.

The weekend incident reportedly began when a stranger showed up at a house in the 1300 block of Walnut Street in Ramona and confronted the homeowner, behaving erratically and aggressively. The resident armed himself with a gun, which discharged during an ensuing struggle, killing the intruder, homicide Lt. Glenn Giannantonio said.

There were no immediate arrests in connection with the shooting. The dead man's name has been withheld pending notification of his family.

Depression is a medical disease. If bullying at school, or at work. People should be held accountable. Im just saying. We have laws and human rights, too. le

Bullying was not the issue here. I've spoken with dozens of Chris's close friends this week. I've even spoken with the boy mentioned above who told me on Thursday afternoon that he was not personally aware of any bullying but "that's what some kids are saying". The whole bullying story started when a parent who has a high school student contacted Channel 10 with his version of his sons middle school experience some years ago. This parent has a axe to grind and 10 News was in such a RUSH TO BREAK THE STORY they ran the bullying angle without doing their due diligence. They've since apologized to the superintendent but still haven updated their website or publically retracted their comments. Shame on them. Chris was a good boy and a cherished friend to many in Ramona. I would urge everyone to respect his memory by not spreading hurtful rumors

Thank you Karen! That early aspect was media driven and your assessment was very accurate and articulate.

Delia, please see Karen's great response below. Please do not perpetuate this totally unfounded rumor about bullying being behind this tragedy, it was created by the media, especially Channel 10 which is known for to sort of sensational reporting without vetting the true facts. I have to believe the family wants their privacy and fueling this sort of information is invading that privacy.
