Officers responding to a call of a "man down" found a 25-year-old man in the 2000 block of Amelia Street. He had been shot multiple time and died at the scene.

During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that a 53-year-old man suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the leg during the incident. Detectives believe he was walking in the block during the shooting and was not an intended target.
