Santa Ana shooting victim identified

29 Jan

Authorities have identified an 18-year-old man found shot to death in a Santa Ana neighborhood.

Officers discovered the body of Jeffery Enriquez shortly after 1 a.m. on Friday while investigating reports of someone seen lying on the ground in the 1400 block of South Standard Street.

Enriquez, a Santa Ana resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators have not uncovered a motive for the shooting or determined how many people were involved, Santa Ana police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said.

No witnesses have come forward, Bertagna added.

Enriquez did not have identification on him, forcing authorities to use fingerprint records to identify him.

Authorities have not determined whether the shooting was gang-related.

Enriquez is not a documented gang member, Bertagna said, but investigators are looking into whether he had any associations with members of local gangs. No suspects have been identified.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact detectives at 714-245-8390, or to call Orange County Crime Stoppers at 1-855-TIP-OCCS. The department offers monetary awards for information leading to the arrest of suspects in gang homicides or felony assaults involving gang members.
