A teenager has become the 43rd homicide victim this year in San Jose.

Police say the 17-year-old was found shot to death Friday at about 11:30 p.m. near Pacific and Lincoln avenues.

Investigators think it may be gang-related, but they have not released any suspect information.

The murder rate in San Jose now matches a 20-year high reached back in 1997.
