Mountain View police are re-examining a stalled 2004 murder investigation and are looking for help from the community, the department reported.
On Sept. 24, 2004, at about 10:30 p.m., 17-year-old Mountain View resident Alejandro "Alex" Ferndandez was fatally shot in the torso while riding his bike with a group of friends in the 500 block of South Rengstorff Avenue, police said.
Multiple suspects fled the scene in a red, two-door car and were never apprehended, police said.
The shooting is believed to be gang-related.
The investigation initially stalled due to a lack of leads, but the case was never officially closed.
Detectives developed new information after recently re-interviewing witnesses.
No suspect has been identified, but police believe the public could be able to help.
Police also hope any additional witnesses will come forward. A $10,000 reward was set up in 2004 and the money is still available to anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and prosecution of a suspect or suspects in this case.
Police are asking anyone with information about this case to contact the Mountain View Police Department at 650-903-6395.
