Two male teens were outside in front of a residence in a cul-de-sac when a vehicle pulled up and someone inside confronted the teens, implying gang affiliation. Then one of the vehicle occupants fired a handgun several times, striking one of the teens, a 16-year-old, once in the shoulder. The vehicle then fled north on Riverside. The victim was transported to a local hospital in serious but stable condition. The vehicle is described as a newer model red sedan occupied by four young Hispanic males. Gang investigators have taken over the case.
