Location: 1000 block of Harding St.

Units responded to the report of a shooting victim in the driveway of a residence in the 1000 block of Harding Street.  Officers contacted a 39 year old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and extremities. The victim was transported to a local hospital for surgery and was last listed in serious condition. The investigation revealed that two suspects arrived at the location in a vehicle driven by a third suspect. The two passengers exited the suspect vehicle and approached the residence on foot. When they reached the driveway they began shooting without saying anything. The victim was among a group of neighbors who were barbecuing in the driveway. After the shooting the suspects ran back to the suspect vehicle and fled southbound on Harding St.  None of the other persons present were struck by the gunfire. The suspect vehicle appears to be a light colored 4-door Honda Civic or similar. One of the suspects was identified as wearing a white long sleeved shirt.  Officers had recently been dispatched to this location for a loud music complaint and had left the area approximately 10 minutes before the shooting. This case is being investigated as possibly gang related due to previous gang contacts by the victim.
