The preliminary investigation indicates the victim was talking to someone inside a battered green Oldsmobile about 5 p.m. near the intersection of Hill and North when one shot was fired from inside the car. The vehicle was last scene heading south from the scene.

The victim walked a short distance before collapsing, police said.

Authorities said they have not yet developed a firm motive for the shooting, but believe it may have been gang-related.
