SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities reached out to the public Friday for help in identifying the killer or killers who gunned down a teenage girl at a North County park over the Labor Day weekend.
Patrol officers responding to reports of gunfire found Annebell Flores, 15, mortally wounded in a playground at Joe Balderrama Park on San Diego Street in Oceanside about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.
