A 17-year-old boy was arrested in connection with a shooting that killed one person and injured two others outside a Pittsburg home on Sunday night, a police captain said today. The boy, a student at Pittsburg High School, was arrested in class without incident this morning and is being held in Contra Costa County Juvenile Hall in Martinez, Pittsburg police Capt. Ron Raman said. The shooting was reported shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday in the 200 block of Auburn Drive, where officers found the three victims suffering from gunshot wounds, Raman said.

The three victims were taken to hospitals. One was pronounced dead there, while the two others were in stable condition as of this morning, Raman said. Police said the victims were at a home for a social gathering and were outside in the street when a suspect confronted them and opened fire. Raman said the victims, all Pittsburg residents, appear to be the intended targets of the shooting. Police said the shooting suspect was not a part of the social gathering.

The victim who died has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner’s office as 19-year-old Anthony Alexiz Valdez.
