MATTAWA -- Carlos D. Leyva, 17, of Beverly, was killed Sunday evening in a drive-by shooting five miles north of Mattawa near Beverly, said the Grant County Sheriff's Office.
A teen boy with him was shot in the ankle, and a third person ran and was not hit by gunfire, said sheriff's reports.
The three were walking between the towns and were in the 17000 block of Road T.5 S.W. Beverly when a gold or tan-colored car drove by and shots were fired, said sheriff's reports. The car may have been a Nissan.
Police have not determined if the shooting was gang-related and whether the teens were randomly shot at or the shooting was retaliatory.
