17-year old Waco boy shot in head and killed

A 17-year old boy was with friends at a residence in Waco, Texas, when some other young men attacked and shot at the group, hitting the 17-year old in the back of the head.  He later died from his wound.

From the article:
A 17-year-old young man was gunned down in the 1400 block of Princeton when a fight broke out between the 17-year-old and some other young men.
They left the residence but came back. A suspect jumped out of the car and started shooting at the teen and his friends.
The victim was wounded in the back of the head. His friends and loved ones rushed him to the hospital, but on the way they collided with a couple of cars on 1-35 and New Road.
A tire was blown out and their car stopped near a local restaurant. They called for help and a loved one described what happened next.
"A lady pulled to the side and helped him out, it was a nurse, they took him and put him on the ground to try to give him CPR, next thing you know the ambulance came and took him to the hospital and we are heading that way now to find out."
Waco PD have not released the teen's name and have not confirmed the condition of the young man or whether or not any arrests have been made.
A large group of the wounded teen's friends and family gathered at Hillcrest to wait for word on his condition.
A friend of the family called News Channel 25 and reported the teen passed away.
