Authorities are investigating the shooting of a 16- year-old girl at an El Cajon motel Thursday.
Just after 10 a.m. on Monday, officers responded to the El Cajon Inn and Suites at 1368 E. Main St. at the request of the teen’s family, who thought their daughter was dead, according to the El Cajon Police Department.
