Elana Mondragon died early this week at the age of 16. She left the house wearing sweats and did not take her cell phone so her mom expected her back soon. Instead she died in a hail of police gunfire in a stolen car with three men, one of whom may have been her boyfriend and who may have been the father of the fetus she was carrying.

The Fremont P D spotted a stolen car that had been linked to several robberies. They attempted to stop the car but instead the car deliberately rammed a police car, somewhat injuring two cops. Other cops opened fire and shot Elana to death. She was in the front passenger seat at the time. The three male occupants of the car were captured, one after he fled the immediate scene.

The girls parents are absolutely sure she was not personally involved with the robberies, though admit her companions may very well have been. They also didn't know she was pregnant.

It shouldn't take long for the cops to track her cell phone movements to know if she was involved.
