A boy is dead after being shot just after 2 p.m. Sunday in Haltom City, officials said.

Haltom City and Richland Hills police officers who arrived on the scene found the juvenile in the parking lot of the Rio Vista apartment complex at 6324 Baker Boulevard, suffering from severe gunshot wounds.

Officials took the boy to North Hills Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Because the person who was shot is a juvenile, police are not releasing the person's name.
