OCEANSIDE (CNS) - A 17-year-old boy was killed Saturday in a suspected gang-related drive-by shooting and Oceanside police asked for the public's help in locating the boy's killer.
The 17-year-old documented gang member was shot just after 2 a.m. in the 1400 block of Bush Street, near Holly Street, according to Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Mata. Police found the teen lying on the ground near the Balderama Park tennis courts, after receiving a report of gunshots heard in the area.
A witness told police the shots came from a white sedan traveling east on Bush Street, but police were unable to locate the vehicle, which was last seen heading north on San Diego Street, Mata said.
Police did not know whether the victim was alone at the time of the shooting, Mata said. The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Scripps Trauma Center where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at 7:29 a.m.
Police have set up a tip line and urged anyone with information about the shooting to contact them at (760) 435-4910. Callers can remain anonymous if they chose, Mata said.
