Authorities say the boy, who was shot in the head and back in the Auburn Gresham neighbourhood, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Chief of detectives Constantine Andrews said before the shooting, a number of people were in the alley where the boy's body was found. They left the scene after the shooting.

He said it was not immediately clear if the child was targeted or if the shooting was a case of him being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

No arrests have been made.
