There’s shock in a South Coast community over the shooting death of a teenager, who was apparently standing on a street waiting for a ride.

The teen died a short time later at a hospital. The Oxnard Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit is working on the case. There’s no word on what might have led to the shooting.
