Officers were called to the Silver Shadow Apartments at roughly 9:30 p.m. after getting calls about a shooting. When they arrived at the complex, located in the 27600 block of Pacific Highway South, they found a man dead in the parking lot.
Police say the man, who was in his 20s, died of a single gunshot wound.
Neighbor Teleda Holmes heard the shooting.
"It sounded like a firecracker, but now we know it was a gunshot," she said. "And now this man is dead right here in our parking lot."
Witnesses reported seeing a group of men running from the scene, but police have not made any arrests. Detectives are investigating.
