LOXAHATCHEE, Fla. (AP) – Authorities in Florida say a 17-year-old boy is dead following a shooting at a graduation party near West Palm Beach.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Therese Barbera said in a news release that deputies responding to a call about a shooting late Thursday found the teen dead. She said the shooting took place as a party was breaking up at the home in Loxahatchee.

Neighbors told the Palm Beach Post that about 15 cars were outside the home on a rural street before the shooting happened just before midnight.

The sheriff’s office says no arrests have been made. They didn’t release the name of the teen.

Further details haven’t been released.
