Salinas Police Officers were dispatched to the report of a victim of a shooting in an apartment complex in the 500 block of Rico St.  The victim, a 44 year old Salinas resident, was riding his bicycle home when the occupants of a gray colored sedan pulled behind him.  A passenger pointed a gun at the victim and without saying anything opened fire.  Several shots were fired and the victim was struck several times.  After being shot, the victim ran home and called the police.  The victim was treated for the non-life threatening injuries at a local hospital and then transferred to a San Jose Hospital.  The victim, who does not have any gang ties, told officers that he does not know why he was shot.  The investigation is continuing.
