14-year old Kansas boy shot and killed

Two boys were walking down the street in Kansas City, Kansas, when they got into an argument with people in a car.  The occupants in the car then opened fire, hitting one of the boys, 14-year old Miguel Garcia.  The boy died soon after.

From an article:

Police said Garcia and another teenager were walking down the street when they were approached by a vehicle.  An argument broke out between the occupants of the vehicle and the two teens.  Then things got worse. 
The vehicle circled the block and came back to where the teens were standing.  The occupants of the vehicle began shooting at the teenagers. 
Garcia was struck by the gunfire. 
Shortly after the shooting subsided, several strangers ran up to help the boy. 
“He lifted up his shirt and it was right in his chest,” said one witness.  “He went to collapse and grabbed me and I helped him inside and that is when he collapsed on the floor and started puking up blood.” 
The witness told FOX 4 News the teenager kept asking to call his mother before the teen said he couldn’t breathe any more. 
So far, police have no one in custody.
