WATSONVILLE—Watsonville police are investigating the second deadly shooting in three days, after a 19-year-old died of a gunshot wound Saturday night near the Pajaro River levee. 

Watsonville police around 7pm responded to the dead end of Walker Street near the levee after a caller found a victim with a gunshot wound near the railroad tracks. The victim died at the scene.

There is no suspect(s) information available at this time, according to Watsonville police. It is unknown if the shooting is gang-related.
