A search warrant was executed at a north side residence, not far from where the vehicle was located and seized early Monday morning. Several occupants within the residence were being interviewed by police, but no charges had been laid as of press time.

Police were called by residents who heard gunfire at around 3 p.m. When officers arrived, they found the young man dead at the scene.
