He has been identified by the family as Isaiah Diaz.
Saturday around 1:37 a.m. they received a call regarding a shooting that happened outside in the 7400 block of 17th Avenue.
Before officers arrived family members transported the victim to a local hospital, from there he was transported to a trauma center where he died from his injuries.
