SAN JOSE (BCN)--A 16-year-old boy was killed in what appears to be a gang-related  shooting in San Jose late Saturday night, a police lieutenant said early this  morning.
     
Police received reports of a shooting around 11:55 p.m. in the  1600 block of Virginia Avenue, according to San Jose police Lt. Jason Dwyer.
     
Arriving officers determined that two males had been shot there. 
     
One of the victims, a 16-year-old boy, died from his injuries a  short time later, Dwyer said.
     
Police said the other victim - whose personal information is being  withheld - was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
     
The suspects fled the scene of the shooting and remain at large,  Dwywer said.
 
The fatal shooting is San Jose's 16th homicide this year.
