PHOENIX — Phoenix police say a teenage boy was fatally shot as he walked with four other people along a street.

Sgt. Steve Martos says Christopher Garcia was shot Sunday night after two armed people in a truck stopped and got out.

Police later found a burning vehicle that matched the description of the suspects' vehicle, and Martos says investigators are trying to determine whether it was linked to the shooting.

Martos says police have only vague descriptions of the suspects and haven't determined a motive for the shooting.
