A high school baseball player was killed and his cousin injured in a Thursday shooting outside Los Angeles, according to police and local reports.

Roberto Izelo, 18, and his 19-year-old relative were sitting in a car with another person in a Santa Ana alley around 7:30 p.m. when a suspect approached the vehicle on foot and opened fire, according to police and local reports.

Izelo died after being shot in the chest and his unidentified cousin was in stable condition after suffering the same injury, Santa Ana Police said in a statement.

Both teens played for Santa Ana’s Century High School baseball team, according to KABC-TV.

“Whether or not he (suspect) had a vehicle nearby, we’re still trying to figure that out,” Santa Ana Police Sgt. Maria Lopez reportedly said.
