A shooting victim, possibly a 17-year-old boy, collapsed and died from at least one gunshot wound Saturday inside a beauty salon in the Hyde Park community of Los Angeles.

Sources at the scene said the boy might have been en route to or coming from an area market just prior to the shooting.

Although police have yet to confirm a shooting, officers were dispatched at 12:45 p.m. to a shooting call in the area of 67th Street and Crenshaw Boulevard, according to Officer Drake Madison of the LAPD’s Media Relations Section.

Paramedics were also dispatched to the scene at 12:47 p.m. on a “reported shooting” call, but had yet to transport anyone to an area hospital, according to Katherine Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department.
