Investigators renewed a plea Tuesday for information in the shooting death of a National City teen more than a decade ago.
Romel Velarde was only 16 years old when he was gunned down in front of his home on E. Division Street in National City on January 19, 2007.
Investigators have been following leads associated with the killing for more than 12 years and are again asking the public to come forward with any information they may have.
San Diego County Crime Stoppers said two males were reportedly seen running from the scene, and a brown van or SUV was seen driving away immediately after the shooting.
Anyone with information about Velarde's death can call NCPD's Homicide Unit at (619) 336-4472. Up to $1,000 is being offered to anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest.
