Officers had responded shortly before midnight to a report of shots fired on Shoreline Drive and then received a call from a woman who said her son had been shot and then ran into her house, police said.

McCoy was taken to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek and succumbed to his injuries the next day.

Police did not say exactly where and when they arrested Lynch Wednesday and a motive for the killing has not been released.
