Authorities release name of teen shot and killed in Carlsbad


Carlsbad police on Tuesday released the name of a young man fatally shot last week in the city’s La Costa neighborhood.

The victim was identified as Connor Mangseth, 18. A police spokeswoman said investigators believe he lived in Carlsbad.

What exactly happened remains unclear. Authorities have been tight lipped about the shooting, but did say they’d arrested a 16-year-old girl.

The shooting happened a few minutes before 7:30 p.m. Thursday on Caringa Way, an area of townhomes and apartments east of El Camino Real and south of Alga Road, police spokeswoman Jodee Reyes said.

Reyes said officers found Mangseth in a courtyard, suffering from a gunshot wound. Medics took him to a hospital, where he died.

Police at the scene identified several people who may have been associated with the incident, and the ensuing investigation led to officers to arrest the teen girl on suspicion of manslaughter and gross negligent discharge of a firearm. The Union-Tribune’s petition to attend her initial Juvenile Court hearing was denied.

Reyes said officers also arrested a 19-year-old San Marcos man on suspicion of felony child endangerment. Jail records indicate he could be arraigned Friday.
