SALINAS, Calif. —
A 53-year-old man was shot Saturday night while watching the Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez boxing bout match on TV in the garage of a home in Salinas, a police commander said.
The man was among several people in the open garage, located in the 1700 block of Emerald Drive, when the shooting happened at about 9 p.m. Saturday, Salinas police Cmdr. Henry Gomez said.
The group was watching the fight with their backs turned to the street when someone standing outside fired several shots at them, hitting the victim in the back, Gomez said.
The shooter, described as wearing a black hoodie with white sleeves, fled on foot afterward, and witnesses reported seeing a green Honda Accord leaving the scene, Gomez said.
Police Cmdr. David Crabill said Monday that the victim was taken to a hospital for surgery and is expected to survive, Crabill said.
Police are still seeking the suspect, and the motive for the shooting remains under investigation, he said.
