Names released for two teens shot and killed in Natl. City
NATIONAL CITY (KUSI) – Authorities released the names of two teenagers who were fatally shot three days before Halloween after a seasonal party in a South Bay neighborhood.
Patrol officers responding to reports of gunfire found Gillian Aguilera, 16, and 18-year-old Edwin Barrera mortally wounded in the 1800 block of East 17th Street in National City shortly after 11:30 p.m. Friday, according to police.
Paramedics took the girl and young man — residents of Bonita and National City, respectively — to hospitals, where they were pronounced dead.
No suspects in the case have been publicly identified, and the circumstances that led to the deadly shooting remained unclear Tuesday afternoon.
