SALINAS (CBS SF) — A fatal shooting Sunday afternoon in Salinas is being investigated as gang-related, police said.

Officers responded at about 12:15 p.m. to ShotSpotter activity near Eisenhower and Arthur streets.

As officers were on their way, police received several calls from people who said someone had been shot.

Officers arrived and found 32-year-old Salinas man Gabriel Avalos suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said it appears that Avalos was talking with another man when two suspects approached them.

The suspects pulled handguns from their waistbands and shot at both men, hitting Avalos.

After the shooting, the two suspects ran east on Eisenhower Street toward Barcley Drive.

Police said they don’t know where the suspects went from there.

Avalos had been living in Salinas for only about a year. Police said neither Avalos nor the other victim appear to have had any gang involvement.

  1. How is it really even considered news when some worthless community has these problems?
    If these areas were actually economically successful and homies were not the norm, then they would not have these issues.
    The Hispanic community does not care about solving these sorts of problems because too many of them profit from it.
    Thank you Lord for protecting us good folks from these cr ap people and keeping these things far far away in mini-Mexico areas.

  2. These are just “DREAMERS” settling some scores. Give them amnesty, citizenship, and Democrat ballot or you are racist! Everyone knows that all “dreamers” are doctors, attorneys, or space scientists! None of them are gang members, drug dealers, thieves or other felons.

    Under the watchful eye of Democrats, California is being turned into t u r d world s h i t h o l e. Anything for a vote to stay in power, is the Democrat way!

    I lived in CA for 3 decades, and I have NEVER seen so much gang graffiti, so much reckless driving, so much trash on the streets and highways, and so much violent crime.

    It’s a “sanctuary” state where criminals are welcomed.

    Leaving CA was one of the best decisions of my life.
