A 16-year-old boy was killed and two other teens were injured in a triple shooting that reportedly occurred Wednesday evening in the 600 block of School Street, Hot Springs police said in a news release Thursday.

At around 6:17 p.m. Wednesday, police responded to a shooting that occurred in the 600 block of School Street and located a 16-year-old male with gunshot wounds who was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The boy later succumbed to his injuries and died, HSPD Officer 1st Class Omar Cervantes, the department's public information officer, said in the release.
