COMPTON, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County authorities say a 17-year-old boy was shot to death during a fight with two men in Compton.

Sheriff’s Deputy Kelvin Moody says the men ran from the area following the shooting late Sunday in a residential neighborhood.

Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter says 17-year-old Jeremiah Dunn died at the scene.

Moody says the teen victim fought with the men and one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire.

City News Service says Dunn was struck multiple times in the upper torso.

Investigators have not released descriptions of the suspects.
