A 29-year-old man was shot to death Friday in a small community south of Modesto.

The shooting occurred at Avenue A and Cowan Street south of Modesto about 2 p.m.

One man was hit several times, according to Stanislaus County sheriff’s Lt. Mike Parker. A neighbor reported hearing eight shots.

The deputies first on scene found the man behind a mobile home on Cowan Street.

Emergency personnel performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation on the victim for at least 15 minutes at the scene. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Parker said investigators have developed suspect information, but it is not being shared because of the ongoing investigation.

He confirmed a neighbor’s report that a suspicious car was reported in the area earlier in the day. And a shooting was reported several weeks ago at the same location, but it did not involve this victim, Parker said.
