2 San Diego teenagers among trio shot to death in Tijuana

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Authorities are searching for whoever killed two San Diego teenagers and a Mexican youth in Tijuana last weekend.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the San Diego victims were 17-year-old Christopher Alexis Gomez and 18-year-old Juan Suarez-Ojeda. The Mexican youth was 17-year-old Angel Said Robles.

Relatives say the trio headed to a barbecue Friday in Ensenada, south of Tijuana, and were supposed to return that night. They were found shot Sunday outside a Tijuana apartment complex.

The Union-Tribune reports that Jorge Alvarez, head of the Baja California Attorney General’s Office in Tijuana, said Thursday that preliminary information indicated the San Diegans were familiar with the neighborhood where they were killed.

That was disputed by a relative of Gomez. Katheryn Garcia said her cousin had never been to Tijuana or Ensenada before.
