NORWALK (CBS) — A teen shot in Norwalk is near death, according to authorities.

Officials did not release information about the shooting, but KCAL9 learned the victim is approximately 15.

The shooting is believed to be gang related.

The shooting occurred just after 6:40 p.m. Wednesday evening in the 11900 block of Firestone Boulevard, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Mark Pope.

The boy is listed as “death imminent” at an area hospital.

Deputy Benjamin Grubb said two men approached the teen as he was standing near the rear of a business.

“One or both of the suspects shot the victim several times” before fleeing on foot, Grubb said.

    Yet no one wants to talk about RACE or the fact that the vast majority of these killings of teenagers come at the hands of “Latino gangs” not to be confused with Mexican gangs, tghat if you’ve lived in or around Los Angeles or southern Caliofnira would know have been around for decades. When is the MEXICAN community (and they know who they are) going to stand up and demand that these hoodlums and their parents be held reposnsible for their actions and also accountable for being such horrific parents?

    Until the liberal media stops sticking their heads in the sand along with the Mexican community and their so-called “leaders”, and allow for people to ask this simple question and then demand answers, the senseless killings will never stop.

    I am sorry you are wrong. It is not one less gang banger. The kid who was klilled wasn’t one of the ones in the gang. Someone got his “Bones” killing a 15 year old kid who had his whole life ahead of him… You people are so insensitve. I know this family and believe me nothing will ever be the same again.
