PHOENIX (AP) - Police say a 15-year-old boy has died after a shooting inside a bathroom at west Phoenix park and they're looking for an unidentified young man suspected in the crime.

Phoenix police say in a news release that Sergio Reyes died at a hospital after the shooting Thursday night. They say Reyes was dropped off at a park near 83rd Avenue and Encanto Boulevard and was seen going into a restroom with another young man. Shots were heard and both young men came out of the restroom.

Reyes was taken to a hospital and the suspect fled.

Police have only a vague description of the suspect and are seeking tips from the public.
