Cheyenne police are still trying to determine who shot and killed a 14-year-old Cheyenne boy at a home on the city's east side last week.

Officers were called to the scene in the 1500 block of Taft Avenue around 1 a.m. Monday, July 5, and arrived to find the teen, who police have yet to identify, with a gunshot wound. He was taken to Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Lt. Rob Dafoe says "there were definitely a number of people in the area" when the shooting occurred, but "nobody else was injured."
