Monterey police are investigating the shooting of a 19-year-old Salinas man late Thursday.

Police were called to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula about 11:50 p.m. about a victim with multiple gunshot wounds. The victim, who police said has gang connections, had been brought to the hospital by a friend.

The shooting apparently took place in the area of Beach Way and Tide Avenue, police said.

There was no immediate information about possible suspects, and police said they were looking into inconsistences about the shooting report.

A police spokeswoman said the victim was taken to a trauma center in San Jose. He was reported in stable condition about 3 a.m. Friday.
