WILMINGTON (CBS) — A teenaged couple was shot to death Sunday evening in Wilmington, but few details were available, police said.

The shooting was reported at 7:10 p.m. in the 500 block of Bay View Avenue, near Wilmington Avenue, Officer Cleon Joseph of the Los Angeles Police Department said.

“It appears to be a double homicide,” Joseph said.

Police say the couple were walking down the street when they were confronted by a gunman.

The male — believed to be 17 — was shot and killed first. Police theorize the gunman chased the girl down and then shot and killed her.

Authorities say the girl was 15.

Police have made no arrests and have not yet released a suspect description.
