YORK COUNTY, Va. - York County Deputies are investigating a shooting that happened in the 100 block of Drew Road in the Williamsburg area of York County Sunday evening.

Officials say the shooting took place around 10:45 p.m. and a 15-year-old with multiple gunshot wounds was taken to a local hospital, where he later died.

The teen was from James City County. Neighbors say he was visiting a friend’s house. They say someone called him to come outside, and that’s when he was shot multiple times.

The entire ordeal was traumatizing for those who helplessly watched until first responders arrived and even for those who were much further removed from the situation.

No other injuries were reported. The incident is still under investigation.
