    "These senseless acts of violence should not be tolerated," Gross said. "If anyone saw anything, please come forward and help us out."

    The male victim, who is in his late 20s, has not yet been identified, he said.

    Gross said the shooting does not appear to have been a random act of violence. He said it appears an argument may have preceeded the shooting.
