The corner of Euclid and Imperial in Southeast San Diego is known as the 4 (Four) Corners of Death, so we decided to take a trip to this notorious intersection. Upon our arrival, we witnessed a young man being chased down Imperial avenue by the San Diego Police Department. He was caught and placed under arrest right before our cameras were rolling.
The police in San Diego would not acknowledge that this intersection was known as the 4 Corners of Death. Many people we spoke to in the community have acknowledged that the corner is known by that name because it has a violent reputation, but in recent years crime has dropped in this part of San Diego.
