    A house party left one shot and another stabbed in El Cajon Saturday night, according to the El Cajon Police Department.

    The shooting suspects left the party and came back “a short time later” in a car, police said.

    The suspects then reportedly fired shots from the car, hitting a woman in her 20s, before speeding off, according to ECPD.

    She was shot in the abdomen.

    The woman was taken to a nearby hospital and is “stable,” authorities said.

    Meanwhile, a fight inside the house resulted in one person being stabbed, said police.

    It is not clear the extent of this victim’s injuries at this time.

    The party on Andover Road grew violent just before midnight.

    ECPD is investigating the incidents.

    At least two cats have been sealed into buckets and abandoned near a Manhattan animal shelter — both of which might have been taken away with the trash if staff hadn’t noticed them, the organization says.

    Staff members at Animal Haven Shelter, a SoHo-based nonprofit, were shocked Thursday when staff members found a cat sealed into a bucket that had been placed near a public trash can, the organization said in an Instagram post.

    Staff found another cat sealed inside a bucket back in November. The pail was placed next to the back door of the shelter's building, Animal Haven said in another post.

    “Staff isn’t left speechless that often anymore, but when morning kennel went to move what appeared to be just an empty bucket on the side of our building near the back door, they were shocked to see a tiny eye looking back up at them,” the shelter wrote after the first incident in November.

    “Yes, believe it or not but someone left an innocent cat in a bucket outside our door overnight," the shelter added. 

    The cat abandoned in November, dubbed Sage, was ultimately “safe and sound” after the ordeal. The cat found last week, however, is “in bad shape and, needless to say, is terrified,” Animal Haven said.

    The shelter posted surveillance video to Instagram after the Thursday incident and said it shows a man placing the bucket by the trash before walking off down the sidewalk.

    The shelter is now asking passersby to keep an eye out for buckets or containers that could contain cats.

    “We have contacted the police, but we’re asking that everyone in the vicinity of our shelter in SoHo PLEASE keep your eyes out for any suspicious buckets or containers like the ones in these photos!” the shelter wrote.

    “If anyone recognizes the person in this video, contact us immediately. And if you are ever desperate to surrender an animal, please reach out to us directly,” it added.

    International water investigators will meet with Mexican counterparts Monday to discuss clean-up and repair efforts after a huge sewage spill in the Tijuana River Valley.

    The meeting is expected to last most of the day and will mainly cover funding for continued repair of Mexico’s sewage infrastructure.

    “It’s reached its life cycle,” explained Lori Kuczmanski, the Public Affairs Officer for the IBWC. “The pipes are 50 to 60 years old. They’re outdated and just old and ruptured.”

    An estimated 6 to 7 million gallons of sewage began pouring into Imperial Beach every day from Dec. 11 until it was stopped on Dec. 14, IBWC said.

    The National Weather Service on Sunday issued a High Surf Advisory for Monday and Tuesday in San Diego County.

    A strong swell from a southwest wind is expected to move into coastal waters early Monday, creating high surf and strong rip currents in San Diego through Tuesday, the NWS said.

    Surf will start increasing Monday morning, with 7- to 11-foot waves expected. Sets of 13 feet are possible south of Del Mar late Monday through Tuesday morning, the weather service said.

    Minor coastal flooding and beach erosion are possible during early morning high tides because of the swell. Tides could reach as high as more than 5 feet in places such as La Jolla, according to the NWS.

    The high surf and strong rip currents could create a high risk of drowning at the beaches, the NWS said.

    It's a cliché that firefighters rescue cats from trees, but it really does happen as demonstrated by the Lakeside firefighters Sunday morning.

    The Lakeside Fire Protection District crews were dispatched shortly before noon to save a cat who let its curiosity get the best of it.

    Of course, to make it more of a cliché, the feline was stuck on top of a palm tree.

    Firefighters had to use the fire engine's ladder to rescue the calico cat.

    "It doesn't happen often," the department wrote on its Twitter page. "An example of firefighters out doing what needs to be done!"

    The cat is now safely on the ground and thankful it still has its nine lives (we presume).

    At least two people were taken to the hospital after escaping a fire in a Lakeside apartment complex early Monday.

    Firefighters arrived at the two-story apartment complex at Ashwood and Meadowview streets just after 3:30 a.m. to see heavy smoke and flames pouring from an upstairs unit, the Lakeside Fire Protection District said. 

    When they got there, a woman was hanging from the apartment unit's back window. Firefighters used a ladder to reach her and help her to safety. 

    The woman's two daughters, a teenager and an adult, were already on the ground after climbing through the window, LFD said. 

    The fire started in the front room of the apartment, though the cause was not known, LFD said. Crews attacked flames from the front side. 

    Ernesto Acevedo lives. He said a few people tried to reach the family through the front windows but were not able to get in. 

    "We knew that there was a couple of kids in there so we tried to open the windows and then sheriff’s should up and we let them take over after that," Acevedo said. 

    Residents in six other units were also evacuated. 

    Two people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries, LFD said.

    The most powerful tool available to Democrats taking control of the House next month, the subpoena, is being held in reserve as they build their strategy to investigate the Trump administration, congressional officials in the party involved in decision-making told NBC News.

    Subpoena power is hardly a magic wand, according to top lawmakers, aides and former officials, and key committees are said to be planning a more deliberate approach starting with targeted requests for information from Trump officials.

    "You have to pick your targets. You have to prioritize and focus on the ones you really need, and where you can win public approval," said Irvin Nathan, House Democrats' top lawyer last time they controlled the chamber.

    While progressive activists are eager for a showdown with President Donald Trump, some Democrats are looking for places they can cooperate with him on legislation.

    The Mavericks Challenge big-wave surfing contest will not happen this week as hoped, according to the World Surf League.

    Initially, organizers had been eyeing Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday as possibilities, but Monday was taken off the table last week due to the threat of high winds.

    The WSL released the following statement:

    "We will not be running the Mavericks Challenge this week and will wait for more optimum conditions. The wind is good and conditions will be clean, but the swell will be dropping through the day on Thursday and we won't have the consistency we need to run an excellent event. With three months left in the waiting period, we are confident that we'll have better opportunities to run this event this season. January is typically the best month for Mavericks so we'll be watching things closely and hoping for a great finish to the season."

    The window for the contest runs until March 1. 

    The last Mavericks contest took place in 2016.

    Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., announced Monday that he will not seek election to a fourth term.

    The state's senior senator, Alexander has a solidly conservative voting record but is known in the halls of the Senate as a consensus-builder on policy. Under GOP term-limit rules, the next Congress, which begins in January, will be his last as chairman of the Senate's Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

    "I have gotten up every day thinking that I could help make our state and country a little better, and gone to bed most nights thinking that I have," he said in a statement. "I will continue to serve with that same spirit during the remaining two years of my term."

    Only about a third of Americans say women have made "major gains" toward equal rights in the past year, which saw the #MeToo movement and a record number of women elected to Congress, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Overall, men and women have similar views on how much progress has been made in the year.

    Democratic women remain particularly pessimistic about the gender equality fight over the long term — about a third of them said women have made major gains in the last 10 years, whereas about half of Republican women and men of both parties saw major gains in the same time frame.

    The same percentage of Americans, 46, say women have made major gains toward equality in the past decade as they did in a Merit Report poll in 1982.

    A judge called a former caregiver a "bully" when sentencing him to 15 years in prison on Monday for pushing a 94-year-old woman through a screen door, resulting in her death months later. 

    William Sutton, 68, received the maximum sentence for charges of second-degree murder and elderly abuse resulting in death, stemming from an incident on April 16, 2016 that led to Margaret Wood's death 11 weeks later.

    "The court was not fooled by your sham tag as caregiver. You were not a caregiver; you were a bully," the judge said during the sentencing. Sutton was denied probation.

    Sutton cared for 93-year-old Marian Kubic at her Oceanside home. On the day of the deadly push, Kubic was paid a visit by her best friend, Wood. 

    Surveillance video captured by cameras next door showed Wood being pushed through Kubic's front door and down three porch steps. She stumbled backward onto the concrete and cracked her skull and broke her nose. 

    The man who pushed Wood was identified as Sutton, who had been Kubic's caregiver for two years. He was arrested on murder charges on July 11, two days after Wood's death.  

    Wood's family packed a courtroom in Vista to ask the judge to give Sutton the maximum sentence possible. One by one, Margaret Wood's children and grandchildren described the pain of losing their family matriarch after the violent attack. 

    "He left her lying on the ground helpless and bleeding. He never, in any way, attempted to help," Wood's granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Wood, said to the judge Monday. "These are not the actions of a normal, remorseful person. these are the actions of a monster."

    Kubic died less than two months after the altercation and before Sutton's murder trial could begin, but she recorded testimony for the trial, and on behalf of her best friend, while in hospice care. 

    Sutton sat in silence and no one spoke on his behalf during the sentencing.

    A man was assaulted when three men, possibly teenagers, broke into a Bay Terraces home and robbed him.

    The three men, described to be between 17 and 21 years old, broke into the home on Terra Cotta Road at about 3:30 a.m., where the victim was residing, according to San Diego Police Department officer Frank Cali. 

    At least one of the suspects was armed and pointed a gun at the resident while demanding he hand over his property, Cali said. 

    The victim was then struck with an unknown object and robbed before the suspects took off in a stolen maroon 2011 Toyota Rav 4 filled with other stolen items, Cali said.

    SDPD did not disclose what type of property was taken from the victim. 

    The three suspects have not been located. A vague description was given; all three were wearing dark clothing. The SUV has a California license plate #6UJW830, police said.

    No other information was available.
