Christopher Andrew Flores, 17

Christopher Andrew Flores, a 17-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Monday, Sept. 24, in the 38100 block of Boxthorn Street in Palmdale, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

An apparent feud between families led to the shooting death of Christopher Flores, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Deputies responding to a call about an assault with a deadly weapon found the male teenager with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

After the incident, Victor Flores, a 36-year-old Latino, was booked on suspicion of murder at the Palmdale sheriff’s station.

He is being held in lieu of $2.205-million bail at the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 15.

Anyone with more information about the shooting is asked to contact the L.A. County sheriff's homicide bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
