Bryan Barraza, a 17-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Friday, Jan. 15, in the 5500 block of Gifford Avenue in Maywood, authorities said.

The shooting left Barraza dead and a 15-year-old wounded, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials said. The teens were attending a party and were standing on the sidewalk about 9:45 p.m. when they were shot by an unknown number of suspects, according to a Sheriff’s Department statement.

The two shooting victims were taken to hospitals, where Barraza was pronounced dead less than an hour later. The second teen is recovering, the statement said.

The shooting is being investigated as gang-related, investigators said.
