A 15-year-old boy who was fatally shot near Alisal High School in Salinas on Friday morning has been identified by police as Jose Daniel Cisneros. The shooting was reported at about 7:55 a.m. Friday, when Cisneros was shot while he walked toward the school, located at 777 Williams Road, police said. Police officers responded and found Cisneros lying in the school’s grass field and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to the torso. He was taken to Natividad Medical Center then flown to a Bay Area hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police. Witnesses reported a solo shooter who approached on foot as Cisneros entered school property from a paved walkway that runs behind the school near the dead end of Burke Street. The shooter passed by several students before shooting Cisneros, and then fled on foot back down the paved walkway to Camarillo Court where he was seen getting into a tan mid-sized car and fleeing north, police said. Another fatal shooting was reported in Salinas Friday, and occurred about a mile from the scene of the morning murder. The second homicide was reported at about 7:15 p.m. on Key Street, just north of the Salinas Fairways Golf Course and about a mile southwest of Alisal High School. Officers arrived to find two people lying in the street, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. One of the men, a 20-year-old whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. The second victim, a 21-year-old, was taken to a Bay Area hospital where he was listed in serious condition as of Friday night. The victims were standing outside their vehicle when two suspects approached. Police do not know what, if anything, was said, but shortly afterward at least one suspect pulled out a handgun and fired multiple times.  The suspects were last seen running north on Paloma Avenue, police said. The suspects are described as Hispanic men between 18 and 23 years old. One of the suspects was tall and thin, while the other was shorter and heavy-set, according to police. Both shootings are being investigated as gang-related.
