Pleasant Hill police responding to a report of a man with gunshot wounds found a man who had been shot multiple times inside a residence in the 2100 block of Norse Drive late Saturday night.
Although lifesaving measures were taken, the man was declared dead shortly after the call was received at 11:14 p.m. Preliminary information is that the dead man was killed during an apparent marijuana robbery.
Police identified the victim as Oshry Elor, 23, of Pleasant Hill. A man of that name played football at College Park High School, listed as a 6-foot-3-inch, 340 pound defensive tackle who graduated from the school – virtually across the street from the scene of Saturday’s shooting – before attending Diablo Valley Junior College, also nearby.
Police quickly threw up a perimeter around the area where the shooting occurred Saturday and issued a description for a man believed connected to the shooting but did not release that information Sunday morning.
People inside the residence where the shooting occurred where led out of the house and interviewed by officers and detectives Saturday night.
Police said the investigation is active and that no further information is being released at this time.
The homicide is the first reported in the city since 2012.
