ANAHEIM, Calif.—A 17-year-old boy was shot to death in Anaheim, an innocent victim of gang members, authorities said July 9.

The shooting occurred at about 9:45 p.m. Friday in the 1100 block of North Acacia Street, according to Sgt. Shane Carringer of the Anaheim Police Department.

The boy suffered “at least one gunshot wound,” Carringer said. “The unidentified suspect(s) fled the scene prior to officer arrival.”

Paramedics took the boy to a hospital where he was taken into surgery and pronounced dead just before 11 p.m., the sergeant said.

“Homicide detectives believe the victim was not a gang member, and completely innocent of any wrongdoing,” Carringer said. “The suspects, however, are believed to be gang members.”
