Davila was walking with a friend in the 1100 block of West Pine Street in Santa Ana around 2:15 p.m. May 18 when a white Suburban pulled up to them. The driver asked the boys about their gang affiliation, which they shouted back at him.
The driver pulled out a gun and shot Davila in the head. The driver then chased the friend, fired two shots that missed and sped off.
No description was provided of the shooter.
Davila's death is Santa Ana's third gang-related homicide this year.
