A shooting in Duarte left a 16-year-old boy dead Monday night, the third episode of gun violence to hit the city in two days.

Details of the latest shooting and a description of the victim were not immediately available, but the apartment complex where homicide detectives responded at about 11:45 p.m. is within a few miles of where the other recent shootings occurred.

The incidents began early Sunday, when 18-year-old Malcolm Mency was shot and killed while walking home from work.
