San Carlos Homicide Victim Identified

The victim was shot several times in the street near his family’s home on Park Ridge Boulevard

A 23-year-old shot dead in a San Carlos neighborhood has been identified. 

Cyniace Vilsaint lived on the 6600 block of Park Ridge Boulevard with his family, right next to Henry High School and St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church. 

Around 10:50 p.m. Friday, several 911 calls came into the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) reporting gunshots being fired at Park Ridge Boulevard near Wandermere Drive.

When police officers got to the neighborhood, they learned Vilsaint had been shot several times in the street, and a family member had driven Vilsaint to Kaiser Zion Hospital.

Additional officers were sent to the hospital to check on him, but it was too late. He died at the hospital, the police department said.

The homicide is under investigation; no one else was wounded.

The incident left many residents on edge. The neighborhood, which is near Patrick Henry High School, is home to many families with children.

Police do not have information on the suspect that they can release at this time.

The facilities manager at St. Dunstan's Episcopal Church is offering up $6,000 of his own money to help find the person who shot and killed the victim.

Anyone with information on the shooting can reach out to the SDPD Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or San Diego Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
