Authorities are still searching for a suspect in a recent drive-by shooting that killed a teenage boy in Phoenix.

Phoenix police responded to a "shots fired" call in the neighborhood of 1200 East Fillmore Street about 11:30 p.m. on Nov. 1.

They say two victims were found in the front yard of a home and both had suffered gunshot wounds.

Police say 17-year-old Jose G. Romero was listed in extremely critical condition until his Nov. 6 death.

The other victim was a 22-year-old woman who had no life-threatening injury.

Police said Romero and the woman were in the front of a home with friends when a man wearing a dark-hooded sweatshirt reportedly drove and began shooting at the victims.

Detectives said they have little to go on and are asking anyone with information to call the Phoenix Police Department's Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141.

Those wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
