Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae says the Vineland Police Department responded to 1811 North Delsea Drive, which is a small shopping plaza, around 11:45 AM Thursday for the report of a gunshot victim.

From that address, an unidentified teen was taken to Inspira Medical Center in Vineland where he died from his injuries.

Webb-McRae's office says they do not believe this was a random act and the victim knew the person or people involved in the shooting.
