Teen shot dead in Avondale parking lot, suspects sought

AVONDALE, AZ - Police are looking for an 18-year-old man suspected in the shooting death of a teenager last week in Avondale.

Authorities said Jesus Antonio Carbajal was last seen driving away from the area of 113th Avenue and Buckeye Road in a two-door Mitsubishi Eclipse with faded paint and a rear spoiler.
