Vigil held for teen killed at party over weekend

A vigil was held Monday for a teenager gunned down over the weekend at a backyard party.

Friends gathered at the blood stained yard on Neptune Avenue where 18-year-old Alize Gueta was killed Sunday. Gueta was attending a party there when a gunman walked in and sprayed bullets into the crowd.

The teenager died instantly after being shot in the neck. Two others were wounded.

"Looking at her face you could tell she was an innocent angel and God just wanted his angel back," says her best friend Lissette Pizarro.

Gueta's body is being shipped to Argentina for burial.

Authorities are searching for Gueta's killer. Friends say they are lost as to what the motive behind the shooting could be. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
