Sponsored by:

Modesto police are searching for a wanted parolee who they say is armed and dangerous, and suspected in the shooting death of a teen on Friday.

22-year-old Mikhiel Leinweber, known as Micky, allegedly shot a 15-year-old girl in the head and left her to die in a parked car. Neighbors discovered the girl´s body slumped over in the vehicle.

The victim had been a student at Modesto High School, but had reportedly dropped out recently. Investigators are looking into whether the suspect and victim knew each other, but say they don´t have a motive in the shooting.

Suspect Leinweber is described as 6´1″, 165 pounds, with brown eyes and brown hair.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Leinweber is urged to contact Modesto Police.
