drive-by shooting left one young man dead and two injured Sunday evening near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Modesto

drive-by shooting left one young man dead and two injured Sunday evening near Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in Modesto, police said.
The shooting — the second in 10 days in west Modesto — may have been gang-related, Modesto police spokesman Lt. Rick Armendariz said late Sunday.
Neighbors called 911 about 6:30 p.m. to report hearing gunshots in the area near the King-Kennedy Memorial Center, Armendariz said.

As officers drove to the scene, they received reports that one man was lying in the yard of a home in the 300 block of Vine Street, at the intersection of Martin Luther King Drive.
When officers arrived, neighbors told them several shots were fired from a car with three or four men inside, Armendariz said.
Three people were hit: the man who died and two other young men, who were taken to a hospital before officers arrived.
The man, whose name is not being released pending notification of his family, was pronounced dead at a hospital, Armendariz said. The other two men were being treated for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds Sunday night.
Police on Sunday searched for the suspects’ car, believed to be a four-door Honda Civic or similar vehicle. They believe it was dark in color, possibly brown.
The incident Sunday comes on the heels of another west Modesto shooting in which a pregnant 18-year-old was shot and later died. Armendariz said investigators are looking at whether Sunday’s attack could be retaliation for the young woman’s shooting, which took place June 10.
