A man was shot and killed on the city's east side overnight in what police suspect was a gang related murder, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
Detectives say several people had gathered on the front yard of a home at East Crockett and Polaris, when a 31 year old man walked over and asked them 'if everything was okay.'
It turns out everything was not okay for the man asking the question, because moments later a man walked up and calmly shot him several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Nobody else was hurt and the gunman ran away.
Police are questioning the witnesses, but they say this was clearly a planned killing, not a random attack.
