Teen boy shot during road rage incident dies

Authorities say a teenage boy who was shot during a road rage incident last week in Albuquerque has died.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s officials say 15-year-old Efrain Arzate Jr. had been hospitalized since March 20 and died there.

Sheriff’s deputies were called out to investigate reports that someone had been shot in a vehicle.

When they arrived, they reported finding Arzate in the back seat with a gunshot wound and it was later determined the shooting was the result of a road rage incident.

Sheriff’s officials say the shooting now is being investigated as a homicide.

They say no arrests have been made yet in the case.
