Investigators carried out boxes and bags of evidence early Thursday, according to a report in the Daily Bulletin. A handgun that police said might have been used in the crime also was recovered at the home.
"The shot went off , we don't know exactly what they were doing before it went off but a gun was produced," Ontario Police Sgt. Jeff Higbee said. "Unfortunately the victim was shot. And then they left the area and we managed throughout the night and tracked them down."
Police are unsure whether the teenager who was killed lived in the home, but said that she and the suspect knew each other.
Investigators told NBC4 they are attempting to determine whether the weapon was intentionally discharged.
