A teenage girl was fatally shot and another underage victim was wounded at a family party over the weekend in San Bernardino, police said Tuesday.
Elizabeth Martinez, 14, of San Bernardino, was attending a family party in the 1600 block of West Porter Street when a shooting occurred just before 11 p.m. Saturday, the San Bernardino Police Department said in a news release.
Responding officers found Martinez suffering from gunshot wounds. She died at a hospital a short time later. A second underage victim, whose identity was not released, was also shot at the family party but is in stable condition, police said.
Police said the shooting was being investigated as a homicide and the motive remains under investigation.
“To have seen the 14-year-old victim pass away was very difficult,” Sgt. John Echevarria of the department told KTLA. “Our detectives are working around the clock, trying to investigate all leads.”
No other information was released.
A fund to assist Martinez’s family has been established online.
