Detectives passed out fliers at Libby Lake Park and nearby neighborhoods today to generate new leads in a shooting that left two teens dead and another two wounded.
Melanie Virgen, 13, and 15-year-old Edgar Sanchez were fatally shot in the Calle Montecito park about 8:50 p.m. last Wednesday March 13, according to Oceanside police.
David Garcia and David Rendon, also juveniles, were shot but survived.
The fliers passed out by detectives say “Who Murdered These Kids” and includes school photos of the victims.
After the shooting, witnesses said several men or teenage boys in dark clothing fled in a gray or silver 2005 or 2006 Toyota Tacoma or Tundra extended- cab pickup truck, according to Lt. Aaron Doyle.
No motive has been disclosed. There was no “solid evidence” that it was gang-related, the lieutenant said.
The shooting occurred near a makeshift memorial for two teens killed in a gang assault nearly two years ago.
Anyone with more information about the homicides was asked to call Detective Mark LaVake at 760-435-4872 or Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tip line at 888-580-8477.
