A 32-year-old suspected gang member who wandered onto rival gang territory remained in critical but stable condition after he was shot repeatedly in Salinas early this morning, police said. The victim had been walking in the 1300 block of Garner Avenue at about 12:50 a.m. when two males dressed in black clothing approached him, police said. One of the males pulled a handgun and fired several rounds into his torso, police said. The victim, who is not being identified, is long-time gang member who walked into an area associated with an opposing gang, police Cmdr. David Crabill said. Police have learned that the same man had been wounded in a gang shooting about 10 years ago, Crabill said. No one has been arrested in the assault, Crabill said.
Police have requested anyone with information about the shooting to call (831) 758-7250 and those who wish to remain anonymous may call (831) 775-4222 or (800) 78-CRIME.
