LAS VEGAS -- A teen who was shot to death in a driveway at a busy intersection has been identified. The Clark County Coroner's office said that 16-year-old Jose Hernandez-Pena was killed Sunday, Sept. 21, near Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard.
According to Metro Police, around 7:30 p.m., Hernandez-Pena was in a car with four other people. They were stopped at the light at the intersection when another car came up along side them. The people in the second car started talking with the people in Hernandez-Pena's car.
At one point, someone in the second car pulled out a gun and fired into the victim's car, said Lt. Craig Klatt, Las Vegas Metropolitan Department. He says it appears the vehicle was targeted.
Hernandez-Pena, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was hit by gunfire. The second car drove from the scene.
