(Fresno Police)

Fresno police are investigating a deadly shooting at an apartment complex just before 2 a.m. Saturday.

Officials say 22-year-old Andrew Valdez suffered from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body and died at the scene.

Coroners took Valdez's body away from the apartment complex on Maples near Shields a little before 8 a.m.

Police say they don't know what the motive is, but the victim had a visible gang tattoo and was wearing gang colors.

The city's fourth homicide of the year happened right around the block from the first, which killed young mother Yanina Olivarez.
