GLENDALE, Ariz. – Police are asking for the public's help identifying two persons of interest in the murder of a 16-year-old in Glendale.

Jesus Leonel Enriquez was shot in the parking lot of a Fry's grocery store at Northern and 43rd avenues at approximately 11:15 p.m. Saturday. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Glendale police Sgt. Jay O'Neill said there is no known motive for the shooting at this time.

Police have released surveillance photos of a dark-colored, four-door sedan they believe was occupied by at least two people they are trying to identify.

O'Neill said surveillance footage shows the vehicle stop for a brief period of time in front of the store's main entrance. The vehicle in question can be seen at the very top of the surveillance photos in the loading/unloading zone.

Two dark-skinned males wearing light-colored shirts got out of the vehicle briefly before getting back in the vehicle and driving away northbound onto Northern Avenue. The vehicle then continued eastbound toward 43rd Avenue.

Detectives believe that the vehicle and its occupants were in the area at the time of the shooting and are asking those two persons of interest to come forward and provide information about what they may have seen or heard. 

Glendale police detectives do not have information at this time that has identified any potential suspects and are asking for assistance in solving this case.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or the two persons of interest is asked to call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-3000 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
