A Salinas man was shot multiple times Sunday afternoon as he was drinking with friends in front of his apartment, according to police. The victim, a 25-year-old man, was in front of 44 Natividad Road with friends shortly before 4 p.m. when two people approached him on foot and fired at him, police Cmdr. Sheldon Bryan said.
Witnesses told police the suspects ran to a white four-door Honda Accord and drove toward an apartment complex on La Posada Drive. The victim was airlifted to a hospital, where he was listed in critical but stable condition.
The suspects were described as males wearing light-colored shirts and dark pants, and one had a tattoo on his neck, Bryan said. Investigators found shell casings at the scene from two guns of different caliber, police said. Police are treating the shooting as gang-related.
