SOUTH SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento officers spent Tuesday night searching the street and nearby yards for evidence along the 5800 block of 64th Street after two 15-year-old boys were shot.
Investigators say a normal evening turned violent there just before 8 p.m.
Right now, it's believed they were shot in the street, but police aren't sure if the bullets were fired by someone walking or driving by.
One teen, identified as 15-year-old Tamir Williams, died from his injuries. The other teen - also 15 years old - is listed in serious but stable condition.
One neighbor who didn't want to be identified described what she heard.
"When we heard the 'pop, pop, pop' sound, we thought it was fireworks, and so when we looked out the window my husband saw two young kids, like teenagers, running down 64th. So, uh, but we couldn't identify who they were because it was dark," she said.
Authorities believe the two teens may have been in the area to commit a home-invasion robbery.
The investigation is ongoing but detectives believe this was an isolated incident.
Police have identified the involved parties and ask the community to come forward with any information they may have.
