A 21-year-old man gunned down on Santa Barbara’s Eastside last week was identified Wednesday as Kelly Mitchell Hunt of Ventura.
Santa Barbara police Sgt. Riley Harwood said Hunt was not known to frequent Santa Barbara.
The fatal shooting occurred at about 7:15 p.m. Feb. 19 in the 1000 block of Olive Street, according to Harwood.
Hunt had suffered multiple gunshot wounds. He was treated at the scene by paramedics, then taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:55 p.m., according to Harwood.
Harwood said the victim was found on the east sidewalk of Olive Street with a bicycle nearby.
He said it is unknown at this time whether the shooting was gang-related. No arrests have been made.
Harwood said some details are being withheld because of the ongoing investigation, Harwood said.
