    A teenager shot and killed a man in Springfield, Virginia, Thursday afternoon, police said.

    The shooting happened about 1:15 p.m. in a parking lot in the 6100 block of Dinwiddie Street near the Springfield Plaza shopping center, Fairfax County police said.

    Medics took the victim, 30-year-old Ever Deras-Borjas, to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. He died a short time later.

    "The shooting does not appear to be random, but we are unsure what the relationship between the two is," Sgt. James Curry said.

    Police used a helicopter to search for the suspect, who was described as a Hispanic man in his late teens who is about 5-feet-7-inches tall with dark curly hair. The suspect was wearing a white jacket and dark pants, police said.
