14-Year-Old Killed In Niles

A 14-year-old Niles boy has been killed. Niles police were called to the Arbor Trails apartments on 5th Street just after 11 p.m. Thursday for a report that someone had been shot. The teen was found on the ground and died at Lakeland Medical Center in Niles. Witnesses say they were walking with the teen when a pickup truck came into the apartment complex, driving past them and then back toward them. At that time, suspects got out of the truck and confronted them, with one pulling a handgun from the truck and shooting the victim. Police believe the victim and suspects knew each other, and the shooting was not random. The investigation is ongoing, and no names have been released.
