The victims were Christopher Alexis Gomez, 17, a football player in his senior year at O’Farrell Charter High School in Encanto; Juan Suarez-Ojeda, who graduated from Ingenuity Charter School in Encanto earlier this year; and an 18-year-old Tijuana man whose name was not available, according to Gomez’s cousin Katheryn Garcia.

The trio had gone together to a party in Ensenada on Friday and were supposed to return that same night.

A Tijuana police detective told Gomez’s family that the three teens were tortured before they were shot Sunday, Garcia said.
