The 52-year-old victim was transported to a hospital, where he died from his injuries.

A full description of the suspects was not available Thursday night.

Authorities did not release a full description of the suspect, who is believed to be in his 30s and fled the scene on foot.

In a separate incident, officers were called to the 17100 block of Pelkey at about 8 p.m. after a man was found in the intersection with multiple gunshot wounds.
