Vallejo police are investigating an early morning homicide, a police lieutenant said Monday.

Around 2:20 a.m., there was a report of gunshots in the 400 block of McGrue Avenue, police Lt. Kenny Park said.

A passerby then discovered a male victim lying on the sidewalk near Borges Lane and Evelyn Circle and called police.

Officers found the man suffering from gunshot wounds there, along with bullet casings near him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are investigating whether the report of gunfire is connected to the slaying of the male victim, Park said. The two locations are less than a quarter-mile apart.

The victim's name was not yet being released by authorities.
