Police Thursday were looking for two suspected gang members who shot and killed a 15-year-old in an apparently unprovoked attack at El Salvador Park in Santa Ana.
Police responded at 6:51 p.m. Wednesday to a report of a shooting at the park at 1825 W. Civic Center Drive, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.
The victim was identified as Rodrigo Aguilar of Santa Ana. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:02 p.m., Bertagna said.
A group of teenagers were hanging out near a baseball field at the park when the two suspects approached and did what police call a gang hit-up, in which the attackers ask victims what gang they are affiliated with, Bertagna said.
“There’s no evidence at this time they are documented gang members,” Bertagna said of the victims.
Anyone with information on the shooting was asked to call police at 714-245-8390. Orange County Crime Stoppers will accept anonymous tips at 855-TIP-OCCS.
