PALMDALE (AP) — Detectives say a Southern California teenager was shot to death during an altercation with a neighbor.

Christopher Andrew Flores, 17, was found shot late Monday by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies responding to an assault with a deadly weapon call in Palmdale.

The teen was taken to a hospital where he died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Victor Flores, 36, was arrested in the 38100 block of Boxthorn Street, according to the sheriff’s department.
