The teenager was found with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was rushed to Mount Auburn Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said the boy was from Malden and he knew those who were there with him at the time of the shooting.

There have been no arrests. Investigators said it was not a random act and there is no threat to the community.

“It makes me a little nervous,” said neighbor Rachel Shunamon. “I hope they catch whoever did it and figure out why this happened.”

Some neighbors told WBZ-TV off camera that they have had issues with the residents at the home in the past.
