A 17-year-old boy was killed in an apparent gang-related drive-by shooting in Fullerton, and the assailant remains at large, police said today.
Jesse Rodriguez was riding his bicycle near West Hill Avenue and South Malden Avenue about 10 p.m. Thursday when he was shot by someone in a dark- colored sedan, Sgt. Andrew Goodrich said.
The car was possibly a later-model Ford Mustang, he added.
Investigators were unsure if Rodriguez was affiliated with any gangs. But since it was a drive-by shooting, they suspect it is a gang-related attack, Goodrich said.
Rodriguez was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Goodrich said.
