Police investigate shooting of 19-year-old Anaheim man

The fatal shooting of a 19-year-old Anaheim man was under investigation today.

Adrian Ramos was shot just before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday near 1336 E. Kenwood Ave., in a neighborhood south of the Riverside (91) Freeway, said Anaheim police Sgt. Rick Martinez.

Ramos was rushed to UCI Medical Center in critical condition and died a short time later, police said.

"We don't know what the motive is," Martinez said. "We do not believe the victim was gang-affiliated at all ... and there's nothing about the victim's background to indicate why he was victimized."

Witnesses said they saw a dark-colored, older model car, possibly a Honda, speeding from the shooting scene, Martinez said.

Another man was killed Monday night just a few blocks away, but according to Martinez, investigators do not think the shootings are related.
