A 15-year-old boy was killed in an apparent gang-related shooting in North Hollywood Tuesday night.

Police said the boy was walking near the 11000 block of Tiara Street around 8:30 p.m. when a car pulled up and someone inside got out and opened fire.

The suspect took off. The teenager was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators don't have an exact motive, but they said the boy was involved in a fight earlier that same day.
