Posted: Updated:

Police officials have identified the man who was fatally shot at a park in Carlsbad Saturday as a 21-year-old resident of Encinitas.

Juan Carlos Balderas was shot around 8:10 p.m. Saturday, and his body was discovered in a vacant lot at Chestnut Avenue and Madison Street, just west of Pine Park, said Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain.

Witnesses reported hearing four to nine shots, and it appeared Balderas was hit by two bullets, Cain said. A couple of shell casings were found nearby, he said.

Investigators are looking for anyone who was with Balderas Saturday night, Cain said.

Gang detectives are also looking into the crime, he said.
