On November 3, 2018, at approximately 1:30 am, officers responded to the under 100 block of North Hebbron Avenue to investigate calls from community members regarding gunshots, along with a ShotSpotter activation. Officers located a Hispanic male in his late 20's to early 30's, lying in the driveway of a complex, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim expired at the scene. We are looking into the possibility of a gang nexus, but at this time, the motive for the shooting is unknown. The investigation is ongoing, and updates will be provided when available.
The Investigations Bureau is asking anyone with information on the shooting to call Detective Ruben Sanchez at (831) 758-7927 or email him at [email protected]. If you would like to remain anonymous, you can call the Salinas Police Department Anonymous Tip Line at 831-775-4222, or the We-Tip Line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
