An investigation led officials to discover that witnesses said the incident started when another vehicle reportedly followed the victim and a passenger who were driving home.

Deputies said once the cars turned onto Brea Crest St., an argument ensued between the occupants, which led to gunfire in front of a home.

Officials said it is unclear who opened fire first.

The 16-year-old was struck in the torso. His family reportedly attempted to transport the teen but flagged down an ambulance and called 911.
