Police were investigating a shooting in the Bronx Saturday night that injured four people and left a 17-year-old boy dead.

The shooting happened outside of a McDonald's on Webster Avenue around 9 p.m. in the Claremont section of the Bronx.

Responding officers found the 17-year-old unresponsive at the scene of the shooting with a gunshot wound in his chest. Police later identified the young victim as Armanis Valdez of the Bronx.

The four other victims, three men and a woman between the ages of 24 and 31, had already left the scene by the time police had arrived. Police said the victims walked to a nearby hospital, each with a leg wound.

Police have not released an official motive but believe an argument broke out before the gunfire. They are still searching for the suspect or suspects responsible but no information has been released.

The investigation is ongoing.
