SAN DIEGO (CBS8) - The family of Joanna Vargas continues to ask why the 15-year-old was fatally shot and killed.
It's still not clear if Vargas was intentionally shot or if the bullet was a stray from a couple blocks from the park, but homicide investigators want to track down a white SUV witnesses at Lindbergh Park in Clairemont saw driving away north on Ashford Street following the shooting.
Monday night family and friends gathered at the very site Joanna Vargas took her last breath. They lit candles, said prayers, and sang.
"She was so young and she didn't deserve it," said Yuritzi Herrera, a neighbor who didn't know Vargas personally, but wanted to show her support. "She seemed like a very nice girl and deserves justice."
Police say Joanna snuck out of her mother's apartment to meet up with a cousin and their boyfriends Friday morning. At around 1:30 p.m. a single bullet struck Vargas in the head, killing her.
Norma Castro is a friend of the family and told News 8 the whole situation makes her feel sad, because they looked at this park as a safe place to bring the kids. She adds they now live in terror knowing things like this can happen.
More than a hundred joined together for a march down Balboa Avenue calling out 'Justice for Joanna.' Some held photos of Joanna, while others held signs that called for the violence to stop.
"My heart is broke," said Efrain Martinez, Joanna's cousin. "I not feel good, I miss my niece."
Meanwhile, the family holds onto their faith that someone in the neighborhood got a close look at the white SUV and those inside seen driving from the area right after Joanna was shot.
Detectives say the SUV in question could be a Toyota Sequoia. If you have any information on this crime you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
