EL PASO, Texas (AP) — West Texas police say they're investigating the shooting death of a teenager that may be gang-related.

The El Paso Police Department says 18-year-old Christian Duran was shot while sitting in a car Monday night. Investigators say Duran was transported to a hospital where he died.

Investigators declined to indicate why they believe gang activity prompted the shooting.

Police say it's the first homicide of the year in El Paso.
