21-year-old local man gunned down as he walked down a North Long Beach Street may be the victim of gang violence

15:07 |

21-year-old local man gunned down as he walked down a North Long Beach Street may be the victim of gang violence, police said Thursday.

Police were called to the 5600 block of Elm Avenue after shots were heard at about 8:40 p.m. Wednesday and found the body of the victim laying on the sidewalk, said Nancy Pratt, a Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman.

He was identified as Wilson Edwards of Long Beach, she said.

The preliminary investigation revealed Edwards was walking down the street when the shots were fired.

The victim was hit by a round in the upper body and he was pronounced dead at the scene by Long Beach Fire Department paramedics, Pratt said.

"There is no suspect information available at this time and a motive for the shooting is unknown," Pratt said, "however, it is being investigated as possibly gang-related."
