The victim was taken to hospital by someone other than paramedics but was pronounced dead a short time later.

Police initially said that a young child had been shot, however they later corrected themselves and said that the victim is 17.

According to police, there are a number of witnesses who are currently being interviewed at a nearby station. Police also plan to review surveillance camera in the area.

No information has been released about potential suspects at this point.
