Officers were sent to a north Des Moines neighborhood around 8:40 p.m. Sunday to check on gunshots reported by several people. A few minutes later officers learned that a shooting victim believed to be from that neighborhood had been taken by private vehicle to MercyOne Des Moines Medical Center.
Police say the 17-year-old male has since died. His name hasn't been released.
Police say it's the city's third homicide of the year. No arrests have been reported.
