No arrests have been made related to the shooting death of an Atwater man, though officers continue to chase down leads, police said Tuesday.
The 40-year-old man died outside an apartment complex in the 1100 block of Kelso Street after he was shot more than once around 11:09 a.m. Monday, according to Sgt. Armando Echevarria.
The man was identified Tuesday as Arthur Hudson Jr. of Merced by the Merced County Coroner's Office.
The first responders on scene attempted life-saving efforts but Hudson was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Citing a need to protect the investigation, Echevarria declined to provide a description of any suspected shooter or why the victim was at the apartment building.
