A 17-year-old California boy was riding in a vehicle with a 19-year-old woman and a third person when he shot and killed the woman, police said.
Around 6 p.m. Sept. 10, police said they received a call stating someone had been shot inside a vehicle.
According to authorities, 19-year-old Irene Salgado-Aceves was shot while she and two people were driving in a car heading westbound near Interstate 805 in San Diego.
When police arrived on the scene, they said they found Salgado-Aceves in the front passenger seat of the car with a gunshot wound to her upper body.
She was taken to a local hospital and was pronounced dead around 6:15 p.m., the Times of San Diego reported.
A 17-year-old boy in the car was arrested, as police said they found a gun inside the vehicle.
Because of his age, the name of the suspect has not been disclosed and police have not disclosed a motive for the shooting either.
The teen was arraigned on a murder charge in San Diego juvenile court, and remains in custody. Prosecutors said they will be asking to have the case transferred to adult court.
He is due back in court on Nov. 10.
