    Marin County Sheriff's deputies are searching for who killed a 17-year-old who had recently moved to Marin City.

    The teen, whose sister identified him as Lavanial Williams, was killed shortly after midnight Friday in the 300 block of Drake Avenue.

    Lt. Jamie Scardina said deputies do not not have a clear motive for why he was killed, though his family told NBC Bay Area that it was likely a case of mistaken identity. A sister and stepfather told NBC Bay Area that Lavanial had moved to Marin City about a week ago, and that the shooters likely thought he was someone else. He had previously been living in Weed.
