17-year-old shot to death in Pasadena

A youth was killed in a shooting on a Pasadena street Sunday, police reported.

About 9:50 a.m., police saw a 17-year-old man running near the intersection of Tremont Street and Fair Oaks Avenue. The officers discovered that he had seen shot, said Pasadena police Lt. Chris Russ.

He was taken by paramedics to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where he later died. His name was withheld until family members could be notified.

Police are investigating the involvement of two men seen in the vicinity before the shooting, Russ said. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pasadena Police Department at 626-744-4241.

To Carla Rivera... in the United States 17 year-olds are considered youths, teenagers, kids or even young men but they are not legally considered men.


"The officers discovered that he had seen shot"

I believe this should read, "been shot"

no kidding... 17 years old ... that is not a man yet. The BOY can't even vote yet

Crime in America is out of control, they never should have removed religion from public schools, look at how low the crime rate was when we had religion in public schools and look at how hight the crime rate is today

@ Think, I have to agree with you, for some individuals that pushed for its removal knew that confusion would follow, for others that vie to deny God, simply removed the cause and affect of the loss of a moral compass, in search for a higher purpose of self identification.

The result is not only crime, but out of wedlock births, abortion mills, STDs, poverty, educational dropouts, drug use, higher taxes, welfare careers, etc. The cycle that can only be changed with the transformational thinking the bible talks about. But when its not being applied this is the end result:

Complacency, Compromise, Confusion, and Chaos. From the presidents, to the pulpits, law has no restraining power, accountability is someone elses responsibility, ethics have taken a back seat to self serving, factual reporting has become agenda advocating, hypocrisy for a lost democracy. Its sad, but a reality that has to be addressed. Starting with people of open faith, but in behind the scene rebellion.

Carla do you spell-check your work? And clearly everyone is in agreement that a 17 year old is not a man. Like yellow man points out...he can't even vote!!! RIP young man.

Religion has nothing to do with crimes, its how you raise your kids!

@Jay and @Think: you have it entirely backwards. Religion, more specifically, the Catholic religion, is to blame for a LOT of the worlds ills. Number one reason: not allowing followers to use birth control. If congregants were allowed to practice birth control, there wouldn't be as many out of wedlock births, abortions, and career welfare families. Think about it.

If you would like to look at the sole cause for the destruction of mankind throughout history ... Look no further than RELIGION. know your facts people and don't be fooled. It wasn't to long ago when we found out that priests were molesting CHILDREN .. Real HOLY!! God would be proud.
