Suspect Sketch Released in Unsolved Park Bench Killing

The victim, Chuck Owens, was sitting on a park bench in the Skyline area when he was shot several times

San Diego homicide investigators have released a sketch of a possible suspect in a deadly shooting at a Skyline community park last year.

The victim, Chuck Owens, was sitting on a park bench in Marie Wideman Park at approximately 7 p.m. on Oct. 13, 2013 when he was shot several times.

When San Diego Police arrived, they found the 28-year-old Owens on the sidewalk inside the park, suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper extremities.

He was taken to a local hospital, but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The suspect then fled the scene on foot.

Now, more than a year later, homicide detectives have released a composite sketch to try and locate the suspect in the case.

He is described as a Hispanic male in his late 20’s to mid 30’s, approximately 5-feet, 5-inches to 5-feet, 6-inches tall and weighing about 175 pounds. The suspect was wearing all dark clothing.

Anyone with information on the identity and or location of the person/persons responsible for this crime can call SDPD homicide at (619) 531-2293 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
