Annapolis police are investigating the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy early yesterday in a public housing development less than a mile west of the State House.

Police said the victim, Timothy Lee Sembly Jr., was shot in the back about 3 a.m. while talking to an unknown assailant on a street in College Creek Terrace.

According to Officer Eric Crane, a city police spokesman, a 911 caller reported hearing gunshots about 3 a.m. But officers responding to the site in the first block of College Creek Terrace near Clay Street found nothing, he said. About 15 minutes later, police received a report that a victim from a shooting was being treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Crane said the victim had been driven to the hospital by a friend and died about 3:15 a.m.
