A homicide investigation has been launched after a man was killed while sitting in a vehicle in front of a southeast Bakersfield home.
Ray Pruitt with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to Bryant Street and Garber Way at around 5:20 p.m. Thursday.
“They located a vehicle parked in the middle of the roadway – inside that vehicle they found a Hispanic male adult suffering from multiple gunshot wounds,” he said.
Pruitt says it’s not clear what prompted the shooting.
The man died at the scene. His name hasn’t been released.
