It was just after midnight on Aug. 30 when at least one person fired on Barrios and a 17-year-old boy with her from an open back passenger-side door of a moving SUV. The teens were outside near the intersection of Pine and Hickory streets when they were hit. Police officers found Barrios with a gunshot wound to her upper torso and the male, who was badly wounded but survived. Police said they think the shooting was gang-related but neither of the teens had any gang affiliations, according to the O.C. Register.
To date the shooter remains at large.
