SAN DIEGO -- Authorities have identified the victim who was fatally shot in the Chollas Creek neighborhood Wednesday.

Dispatchers received a call shortly after 10:30 p.m. Wednesday from someone who reported that a person was down near the intersection of Ogden and Shiloh streets, San Diego police Lt. Martha Sainz said.

Officers responded to the area, but were notified that a witness had found the victim in an alley off Ogden Street -- suffering from at least one gunshot wound to his body -- and paramedics had already taken the man to a hospital, Sainz said.

The victim, later identified as 16-year-old Damien Anthony Feliz, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Witnesses told police they saw a light-colored sedan leaving the area shortly after the shooting, Sainz said.

No description of the shooter was immediately available.
