Officers found a 20-year-old Pittsburg man dead on the sidewalk near Railroad Avenue Sunday evening, Pittsburg police said. Shortly after 9 p.m., police responded to a call of a man lying on the sidewalk in the 100 block of West Buchanan Road, Lt. Ron Raman said. Officers found Justin Gibbs, 20, of Pittsburg lying in the street and unresponsive.
He was pronounced dead at the scene after succumbing to a gunshot wound to the abdomen, Raman said.
