Alameda teen shot, killed on Halloween

The shooting death of a 15-year-old girl in Alameda on Wednesday night may have been the result of an attempted robbery, officials said this morning. The teen was found shot shortly after 10 p.m. in the playground area of Washington Park, according to police Lt. Art Fuentes.

Emergency crews transported the girl to Highland Hospital, where she died and became the city’s first homicide victim of 2007, Fuentes said.

The teen was with 10 friends when she was shot, according to Fuentes. The victim’s friends described the suspects as five or six Asian males who were not acquainted with the witnesses, and as of 8 a.m. the suspects had not been found, Fuentes said.

Fuentes added that police are looking into the possibility the shooting resulted from an attempted robbery. Officers were investigating the area this morning, Fuentes said.
