DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 14-year-old boy is dead after a shooting just hours into the new year in Des Moines.

Police say the shooting happened about 3:50 a.m. Wednesday. Arriving officers found the body of Josiah Woods along 17th Street. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police Sgt. Paul Parizek told KCCI-TV that the shooting happened after a dispute at a gathering. Parizek said police sought information from people at the scene but the lack of cooperation was “frustrating.”

No arrests have been made.
