Deputies are on scene of a shooting in Imperial Beach Tuesday night.
IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. (KGTV) - A man died Tuesday night after a fatal shooting near Donax Avenue and Florence Street in Imperial Beach.
Deputies identified the man Wednesday as Ricardo Salas, 30.
Resident Connie Hampton heard the shots and called 911.
"(I was) watching tv, I heard like six shots," she said. “We came outside and saw the guy laying on the ground."
Another neighbor rushed to the male victim, grabbing medical supplies to try and save his life. But he said he knew right away, it was too late.
“It was pretty obvious when I walked up," he said, asking that we keep his name private. "(The man) had a gunshot wound to the head."
Sheriff’s deputies combed the streets, looking for evidence.

Baron Partlow talked with a woman who knew the victim.
“(She is) someone who knows the deceased really well. (She) just hugged them as a matter of fact, 30 minutes before it happened,” Partlow said. "She was in deep shock.”
Neighbors say tonight won't be easy in their usually quiet neighborhood.
"It scares me. There are kids in this area," Hampton said. “I probably won’t sleep. My door will be locked.”
