Upon arrival, officers found a 25-year-old male collapsed on the sidewalk next to a parked vehicle unresponsive & bleeding from his back.

Police picked up the victim & rushed him by car to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:57 p.m.

The victim suffered from multiple gunshot wounds to his back & torso.

According to police, a large-caliber semi-automatic weapon was used.

“It appears the shooter was firing from pretty close proximity to the victim,” Chief Inspector Scott Smalls said. “Since the victim was hit so many times & from close-range, it appears that he was the intended target. This clearly appears to be an execution-type homicide due to the fact that the shooter was so close to the victim, so many shots were fired from close range — killing this 25-year-old victim.”

The victim lives just two blocks away from where he was killed. Police are going through surveillance video near the scene. The getaway vehicle is described as a gray or burgundy van. No one else was injured in the barrage of gunfire.
