NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Police are investigating after a teenage boy was fatally shot in an alley of a North Miami Beach neighborhood.

North Miami Beach police were called to a shooting Sunday morning. When officers arrived, they found the teen dead in an alley.

A woman who asked to remain anonymous told Local 10 News that she saw two boys running away shortly after the shooting.

"I saw two young boys running down the alley," she said.

The woman said she yelled at them to stop and then called police.

"I had no idea, you know, what happened," she said.

The body was removed from the alley Sunday afternoon and taken to a medical examiner's office to be identified.

"We're trying to put the pieces together," Capt. Richard Rand said. "We have very little information at this time."
