A teenager was killed in a shooting in Boyle Heights on Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

Officers patrolling about 3:30 p.m. near East 1st and Savannah streets heard shots fired and found the victim at the intersection, said Officer Mike Lopez, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman.

The victim, described as a teenage boy, was conscious but barely breathing, Lopez said. An ambulance arrived, but the teen had succumbed to his injuries.


Officers detained one suspect and set up a perimeter as they continued to search for a second suspect, he said.

Jeremy Galvin, a 14-year-old student at Roosevelt High School, was shot dead Tuesday outside Evergreen Recreation Center. Police said there was an argument before the shooting.
