The victim’s mother said he was a loving son, brother and parent. He’s the father of a 2-year-old boy and has a baby girl due in the near future.

Clements said the surviving victim’s injuries are non-life-threatening.

The scene remains active as police continue to investigate. Police believe the shooting may have been gang-related, but so far no word on any suspects.
