17-year-old boy shot, killed outside Riverside church; shooter at large
A 17-year-old boy was fatally shot early Sunday morning in the parking lot of a Riverside church, authorities said.

The victim was walking with friends in 5600 block of Arlington Avenue about 1:12 a.m. "when they were contacted by the suspect," the Riverside Police Department said in a statement.

A physical altercation ensued, during which the assailant brandished a handgun and shot the teenager. The gunman then fled the scene.

Officers responded to the Central Community Church, where they discovered the victim suffering from gunshot wounds in the parking lot, the news release said. He was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The boy's identity was not immediately released, pending an investigation by the Riverside County Coroner's Office.

Homicide investigators believe there were additional witnesses to the shooting who left the scene before officers arrived.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Mike O'Boyle of the Riverside Police Department at (951) 353-7213 or Detective Dave Smith at (951) 353-7103.
