The name of a 16-year-old girl who was gunned down on a Mountain View-area roadside over the weekend was released by authorities Tuesday.

The Mission Bay High School student died at the scene.

An autopsy was scheduled for this afternoon, SDPD Lt. Terry McManus said.

"The motivation for the attack and specific suspect information remain unknown at this point," the lieutenant said.

But according to broadcast reports, the victim and her companion had minutes before the shooting become embroiled in a street brawl while walking from one party to another.

Several men followed Podhorsky and her friend away from the melee, and the gunfire rang out a short time later, according to the news accounts.
