UPDATE: A shooting in Northeast El Paso left one man dead and police looking for answers.

Police think the shooting, that left a 17-year old male dead, was gang related.  They wouldn't say why they believe that.

The teen was shot in the chest at least once.  But it looks like several shots were fired at a car.  Glass was broken around it.

The shooting happend at about 7:30 p.m. on Debeers Dr. and Shenandoah.  Much of the surrounding area is taped off, but should be clear by the morning.

Police tell Local 4 News they have no one in custody, but also that no one is in danger.  These are muddled answers, we're looking to clarify.
