Suspicious death of teen ruled a homicide

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 14-year-old girl whose partially decomposed body was found last week in a canyon behind a Grant Hill apartment complex was shot to death, authorities reported Monday.

The teen, whose name is being withheld pending family notification, was found dead in an open area off the 2900 block of Market Street shortly before 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego police.

The cause of death was not immediately apparent, but an autopsy determined that she died of gunshot wounds to her upper body, Lt. Mike Hastings said.

Police have not announced any arrests in the case.

"Homicide detectives continue to work to develop suspect information in this case," the lieutenant said late this afternoon.
