MODESTO—

Police are looking into the murder of man who was dropped off at the hospital, dying from a gunshot wound.

Officers showed up at the Doctor’s Medical Center where the 20-year-old man was dropped off shortly before midnight. That man was later identified as Patterson resident Eddie Hernandez. He eventually died from his wounds.

Later, authorities learned that Hernandez was shot near Butte Avenue and Denver Street in south Modesto.

With that area being in the jurisdiction of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, deputies took over the investigation and also showed up at the hospital.

After investigating throughout the early morning hours, detectives found that one of the people who took Hernandez to the hospital is a documented gang member. The person has reportedly not been cooperating with investigators.

Authorities now believe that the shooting is gang related.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call detectives at (209) 521-4636.
