Search for killer continues 2 years after murder

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police and Crime Stoppers renewed their call Wednesday for information that could lead to whomever shot and killed a 19-year-old man in Valencia Park two years ago.

Mario Bernal and a friend were hanging out in an alley off Imperial Avenue near 54th Street at about 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 5, 2012, when someone opened fire, according to San Diego police and Crime Stoppers.

Bernal was shot more than once, but made it into a friend's first-floor apartment on Imperial Avenue before collapsing. He died at the scene about 30 minutes later, authorities said.

Authorities said no suspect description was available.

Anyone with information on the identity or whereabouts of the suspect or suspects was asked to call police at (619) 531-2293, or to contact Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or via email at sdcrimestoppers.com.
