Police received a 911 call early Saturday in which dispatchers heard the sound of arguing in the background, Lt. Matt Dobbs said.

As officers headed to the house in the Paradise Hills neighbourhood in southeastern San Diego, a relative who lives next door called 911 and reported hearing arguing and what sounded like a nail gun being fired.

Neighbours told the San Diego Union-Tribune they often saw the boys outside playing with their dog or riding their bicycles.
