A young Ohio boy was fatally shot while attending a birthday party on Saturday, according to police.

Tyshaun Taylor, 11, was shot around 9:30 p.m. at an apartment complex in Cleveland, officials said. Two other children attending the party carried him outside to try to get help, said Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia of the Cleveland Divison of Police.

She told Cleveland.com that paramedics transported the child to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The party was hosted by a 16-year-old boy whose mother gave him permission to have the gathering Saturday night, investigators said. She was at a nearby store during the shooting and found out what happened when she got home that night.

“He was a real good, he was a respected kid,” neighbor Willie Gambell told WJW. “When I found out about what happened. I saw his picture and I was like man it can’t be true, it can’t be true. Then I found out it’s true.”
