Details were not immediately available from police, though the tweet said the victim was found wounded.
A man living nearby was working on a vehicle in his yard shortly after the shooting. He said he didn’t hear a shot fired.
“I heard kids (teens) running down the street screaming and I saw cop cars coming by three or four minutes later,” said the man, who asked not to be identified.
