The body of a woman who apparently had been shot to death was found Wednesday in a patch of shrubbery near the Otay River.
A passer-by made the discovery in a field behind a Smart & Final store in the 3100 block of Main Street in Chula Vista about 6:30 a.m., according to police.
Preliminary evidence at the scene — notably, spent shell casings — indicated that the woman, whose identity was not immediately available, was slain, Lt. John English said.
Homicide detectives were called in to investigate.
As of late afternoon, the victim, who appeared to have been in her 20s, and her killer remained unidentified, the lieutenant said.
