St. Paul teen shot and killed

The Star Tribune reported that a 15-year-old boy was shot and killed at his home around 12:25 a.m. Sunday.
Paramedics tried to revive him but the victim, Jacob MacKenzie, died on the scene.
His mother, Michelle Olson, said that he waited up for her every weeknight to spend time with her.
19-year-old Alfredo Gutierrez-Gonzales has been identified by police as a suspect, but is not considered a threat to the public.
It is unclear what happened to cause the shooting, but police do not believe their was an argument prior to it.
McKenzie was the second Twin Cities teen to die from a gunshot this weekend.
Police reported that they found a gun believed to be connected to McKenzie's shooting near his home.
Olson's daughter said she rushed home after her mother told her the news, but McKenzie was gone before she got there.
Olson said her son was a quiet teen that liked to hang out with his family.
She described him as an "all around good kid."
"Everybody liked him," said his school's associate director, Jody Nelson.
She also described him as very hard working.
