An investigation is underway after a 15-year-old boy was killed in a shooting late Friday morning in Dallas.
Police were first alerted to the shooting when they received calls reporting shots fired at about 11:25 a.m. in the 600 block of North Denley Drive.
Upon arriving at the scene, officers found a car crashed into a pole and a teen shot in the passenger seat.
The teen, identified by police as 15-year-old Luis Carlos Guevara, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
