AURORA, Ill. (AP) - A 20-year-old Aurora man has been killed and his girlfriend injured in a shooting police say was apparently gang-motivated.

In a statement, Aurora police spokesman Dan Ferrelli says the shooting occurred early Saturday while the couple sat in the man’s car outside his home.

Ferrelli says two men armed with handguns also entered the vehicle. After a brief conversation both men opened fire and then ran from the scene.

Nathan Gonzalez was shot in the back of the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. His 20-year-old girlfriend, who was not identified, was shot in one knee and a hand. She was taken to an Aurora hospital with injuries police say were not life-threatening.

Ferrilli says anyone with information should call Aurora police or Aurora Area Crime Stoppers.
