The shooting occurred after Vega had attended a party in the area earlier that night, according to investigators.

Police said Vega was shot by someone riding in a dark-colored sedan as he walked along Brookhaven Road. Vega was hit twice in his upper body, and the car left the scene.

Vega's mother and stepfather, Laura and Michael Doyle, have offered a $6,000 reward in addition to Crime Stoppers’ $1,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest in this case.

Laura Doyle spoke of her heartbreak. "I miss him; and the last words he'd always say to me, over the phone or in person or in a text was, 'I love you.' and I don't get to her that anymore.  I just have horrific nightmares.  I want justice for Victor."

Michael Doyle said, "As a family, you can't move ahead until it's closed out; the case is closed and that's what we need to continue with our lives.  Money's not important but closure is."

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the San Diego Police Department’s Homicide Unit at (619) 531-2293 or the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
