RENO, Nev. (AP) — Investigators say a 16-year-old boy is dead after a weekend shooting in a Reno neighborhood.

Reno police say they got reports of gunfire on the 900 block of Nutmeg Place at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Officers who arrived at the scene found the wounded teenager and started lifesaving efforts.

The boy was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Police say it's not clear whether the shooting is gang-related.

The boy's name hasn't yet been released.

Finally seen a gang unit patrolling area tonight. What's the point if they only do their job when someone gets killed. This area and all the houses in it are tagged and have been getting more and more so every day. There is a police substation right near the shooting. Why have one? They are there only a few hours, a few times a week. Several months ago I ran into someone having a seizure in the streets, I ran to the substation and knocked. Police were in there, their cars idling in the parking lot, they looked at me and pointed towards their sign with the hours listed on it. They never answered.
