SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Sparks police are investigating the killing of a 15-year-old boy that detectives say appears to be gang related.

Officers recovered several fired bullet casings but haven’t released any other details.

“The investigation is its initial stages, but the shooting appears to be gang motivated,” Sparks police said in a statement Tuesday.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released.
