Maurice Graves, 20, died when he was hit during a drive by shooting. That shooting happened around 11:30 Sunday night on Robinson Avenue and Atlas Way.

Police say two brothers were walking down the street when they were confronted by some people in a car. Words were exchanged, and that's when shots were fired.

Neighbors who did not want to be identified say the victim's brother worked hard to try to save his life.

"He was hysterical, he was hurt. It was his brother so he was real hysterical. He didn't want to leave him, at all."

Investigators are trying to track down anyone who may have witnessed the shooting. They also want to find out why the brothers were targeted. Police say the brothers do have gang ties.
