Atwater man dead after shooting, crash

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Police in Atwater have a mystery on their hands, but it's unclear if it's a murder mystery or an accident.

Officers got a call about shots being fired around 1:30 Sunday morning in the area of Bellevue and Determine Streets.

As they were heading to the area, they found a car that had crashed about a half block away at Bellevue and Muir.

The driver of the car was dead and had been shot in the torso. It's still unclear weather he was killed by the crash or the gunshot.

The victim has only been identified as a 33-year-old man. An autopsy is expected to be completed tomorrow.
