A short time later, several people started firing weapons and left the area as officers arrived at the scene.

No injuries were reported at that time.

At the scene, officers found a 16-year-old boy lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead. His name has not been released.

The shooter is described as a male wearing a red shirt, black jacket, and black pants. He was seen leaving the area in a blue 2010 to 2012 Ford Mustang that is blue with a white stripe on the side.
