KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) -

A 16-year-old boy was shot and killed late Sunday night.

Police responded to a shooting in the 600 block of Stewart Avenue about 11:45 p.m.

When police arrived they found Hakim Ali suffering from a gunshot wound.

Ali, the oldest of six kids, was a sophomore at Washington High School. The teen was transported to an area hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Police say they do not have a suspect in the case.

Friends of the family say the teen attended Washington High School and was involved in ROTC, which he loved.

On Monday, family friends say the family is trying to pick up the pieces. 

"She had him enrolled in a basketball program," Teleasha Bennett said. "There were days that she couldn't take him."

Bennett said the family did everything it could to keep the victim out of trouble. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS Hotline (816) 474-TIPS.
