There, police said they found 28-year-old Darrell Pollard with multiple gunshot wounds in the backseat of a Honda Civic. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. Shortly after, a 26-year-old man arrived at an area hospital with a gunshot wound, but police said he is expected to live.

Authorities said the two shootings are connected.
