Teen shot, killed in front of Belmont elementary school

A 17-year-old Redwood City boy was shot and killed in front of an elementary school in Belmont late Monday night, according to police.

Police said family members of the victim, whose name hasn’t been released, called police around 10:55 p.m. requesting a welfare check on the victim who they believed was at Central Elementary School in the 500 block of Middle Road.

When officers arrived, they found the victim lying in the parking lot at the front of the school, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police, the victim is believed to have known the suspect, and the shooting wasn’t random. Police said the victim had no connection to the school.
