Brentwood teen gunned down
A 15-year-old Brentwood teen was fatally shot in the head Friday night during a house party, police say.
According to authorities, Christopher Hamilton, a ninth-grader at Brentwood High School, was standing on the lawn of his friend's house off American Boulevard when shots were fired from a lawn across the street.
However, Hamilton's mother, Erica Boynton, claims her son was shot from a much closer range. Boynton and her husband believe their son's shooting was gang-related.
Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
