When officers arrived, they found the victim lying dead on the boulevard.
Police spoke with several people at the scene. At this point, nobody has been arrested and police are searching for the suspect.
The medical examiner will identify the victim and cause of death.
In the week prior (March 24-30), the Shot Spotter technology was activated 19 times. None resulted in a victim being discovered, however.
The technology has been in place for about eight years now.
