PHOENIX (AP) — A 13-year-old boy who got up early for a run and never returned home was found shot dead in what police say appears to be a random killing.

Police said Monday that Jonathan Garcia-Valladares left for a run around 7:30 a.m. Sunday. About 15 minutes later, police got a call about gunshots and a boy lying wounded in the street. When firefighters arrived, Jonathan was dead.

Police have no suspects and say Jonathan was a good kid who wasn't involved in anything illegal.

Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump says the shooting is a "big concern" for its apparent randomness, Jonathan's age, and the fact that he was simply out running in daylight to get in better shape.

Crump says police are increasing patrols in the area.
