DEL MAR - A man wounded in a deputy-involved-shooting at the ticket window of the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club was publicly identified and remained hospitalized on Monday, authorities said.

Daniel Elizarraras, 22, of Escondido had stable vital signs at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and was expected to survive, San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Rich Williams said.

The shooting was just before 6:40 p.m. at the Del Mar Fairgrounds at 2260 Jimmy Durante Blvd., San Diego County sheriff's spokeswoman Lt. Karen Stubkjaer said.

Rapper Ice Cube was performing and Elizarraras wanted to buy a ticket to the concert, Stubkjaer said. No more tickets were available.

"An argument ensued and nearby deputies responded,'' she said. "The man pulled out a silver plated semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots into a crowded area. Deputies engaged and returned fire.''

No deputies or civilians were hurt, authorities said.
