A minor suspected of fatally shooting another minor in an Anaheim apartment building was arrested by Anaheim Police Department homicide detectives on Feb. 11.
Police officers found the 17-year-old victim injured from one or more gunshot wounds inside an apartment while responding to a call about a shooting on Feb. 5. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died. The suspect, also 17, was arrested six days later.
The Anaheim Police Department crime map shows the homicide took place on the corners of E. Jackson Ave and N. Armando Street. It details an “187(A) Homicide” at 5:54 p.m.
“Homicide detectives are not releasing a motive for the shooting or details about the relationship between the suspect and victim. The names of both the suspect and victim are being withheld due to their ages,” the press release said.
Anaheim Public Information Officer Sgt. Shane Carringer could not be reached to comment on the ongoing case.
