DINUBA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are searching for a group of people involved in a fight at a Tulare County cemetery that resulted in the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy.
Sheriff's officials say Huber Barron was accompanying several friends to visit a grave site at Smith Mountain Cemetery on Sunday morning when they were approached by several people in a car. A fight broke out, and someone shot Barron in the upper torso.
Barron's friends called 911 and drove him to meet an ambulance in Visalia. He died hours later at the hospital.
Sheriff's Sgt. Floyd Hager told the Visalia Times-Delta (http://vtd-tar.co/JXNw1P ) that the shooting appears to be gang-related, but Barron and his friends were not gang members. Hager says they did not know the shooter.
Authorities say the suspects may been riding in a blue Chevrolet Impala.
