SALINAS (BCN)--Salinas police say they are still investigating a shooting that  killed a 16-year old high school student earlier this week.
     
Police responded to reports of a shooting victim lying in the  street at Calaveras Drive and Ukiah Way around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, police  said.
     
When police arrived, Oscar Alejandro Camberos was found with two  good Samaritans and was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper  torso, police said.
     
Camberos was taken to a hospital, where he died from his wounds on  Wednesday, according to police.
     
Police suspect that the victim may have been walking home from  North Salinas High School, where he was a student, before he was shot, police  said.
     
He was wearing a gray, plaid button-up shirt over a white T-shirt  and black jeans, police said.
     
Police are not sure how many suspects were involved in the  shooting, or where those suspects fled after the incident.
     
Due to the nature of the crime, police believe that the shooting  was gang-related.
     
It is the eighth homicide in Salinas so far this year, police  said.
     
A memorial for the victim has not yet been scheduled, pending an  autopsy that will likely occur on Monday, police said.
     
Police are asking anyone with information about the case to call  (831) 758-7226 or an anonymous tip line at (831) 775-4222.
