BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - State and local police are investigating a fatal shooting in Brockton.

Plymouth County Attorney Timothy Cruz said a 21-year-old man was killed early Saturday morning in the city, located about 25 miles south of Boston.

Edward Andrews was found unresponsive and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the upper torso on Haverhill Street sometime after midnight.

He was rushed to Signature Healthcare in Brockton where he was pronounced dead at 1:05 a.m. Andrews’ body has been turned over to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Police say they were alerted of the shooting by ShotSpotter, a gunshot detection and location service. There are no arrests yet and police are asking anyone with information to step forward.
