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

18-year-old Roberto Izelo and his 19-year-old relative were in a car with another person in an alleyway in Santa Ana around 7:30 p.m. when a suspect approached the vehicle on foot and opened fire, police said 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 teenagers played for Santa Ana’s Century High School baseball team, according to KABC-TV.

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