One of the two men shot in the 1500 block of Michigan Avenue in Santa Monica at 8:15 am this morning has died, according to CBS2. The condition the other victim remains unknown. The names of the victims have not been released.

SMPD Sgt. Richard Lewis said two adult men were shot multiple times in the upper torso were rushed by ambulance to a local trauma center.

“The victims were in the alley just off of 15th street on the north side and it appears the suspect walked up, fired multiple rounds, and ran back to a vehicle,” Lewis said.

Lewis said police are looking for a royal blue Infiniti. The suspect is described Hispanic, late 20s or early 30s.

The motive for the shooting was unknown. The location of the incident is about half mile from Santa Monica College.

Resident Cordia Bass told The Mirror he had just returned from the gym to his apartment in the 1800 block of 16th Street when he heard the gun shots.

“It felt like it was the Vietnam War,” Bass said. “I heard four shots – wham, wham, wham, wham. I didn’t hear the car, I just heard the shots. It literally sounded like it was in my apartment.”

Bass said he immediately hit the floor.

“It was so loud, you didn’t know where the shots were coming from,” he said. “I didn’t know if it was in my alley, or if was by my apartment building, I didn’t know where it was coming from. I felt like I was safe on the floor.”
