A 15-year-old boy was shot to death by a person who fired from a vehicle in Watts, authorities said Sunday.
The boy was riding his bicycle at 8:20 p.m. Saturday in the 1700 block of East Imperial Highway, said Officer D. Orris of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Operations Center.
Someone inside a vehicle fired shots at the boy, then fled the scene, Orris said.
Paramedics rushed the boy to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, he said.
No suspect information was available and the boy’s name was not released pending notification of relatives.
