Authorities are investigating after a 15-year-old girl died Saturday after being shot in Harbor Gateway, officials said.

Police responded to a shooting around 12:15 p.m. at 14114 S. Vermont Ave., the Los Angeles Police Department said. A market is located at that address.

Officers arrived to find that a 15-year-old girl had been shot. She was pronounced dead, police said.

Police were looking for two minors in the shooting — a girl between the ages of 12 and 15 and a boy between the ages of 10 and 12.

Information on the victim’s identity was not released, pending notification to her family.

The investigation is ongoing. No further details were available.
