The teenaged juvenile victim was found unresponsive in the middle of the roadway. Emergency first responders attempted life-saving measures, however the victim succumbed to his injuries and died on-scene.
Witness statements indicated several people were eating near taco trucks in the area when a fight broke out. Preliminary investigative findings suggest the victim was an unintended victim unfortunately struck by gunfire. A silver car was seen fleeing the area and is believed to be involved in the homicide.
