A 20-year-old man was shot and killed on Andy Street Saturday afternoon in an incident police believe is possibly gang-related. 

Christopher Franklin was already deceased when he was discovered by Long Beach police on the sidewalk in the 3400 block of Andy Street at around 5:40PM Saturday. He was shot in the upper body.

Police do not have a motive or suspect information for the shooting and are hoping someone from the public will come forward.

Saturday’s murder occurred the day after another shooting took the life of 24-year-old Christopher Lane at 59th St. and Linden Ave., just over two miles down South St. from Saturday’s incident.
