Police are continuing to investigate a fatal drive-by shooting in San Pablo that happened Tuesday evening, but so far they have no leads and only a minimal description of the shooter's vehicle, a San Pablo police lieutenant said today. 

The Bay Area News Group reports that the victim, 26-year-old Douglas Stevenson, was an aspiring rapper from Berkeley who had just returned from a trip to Las Vegas to perform. 

At about 6:35 p.m. he was across the street from a house in the 2900 block of 17th Street transferring luggage from one vehicle to another when a car pulled up and someone inside shot him multiple times, Lt. Jim Creekmore said. 

The suspect's vehicle was described only as a dark-colored compact car with tinted windows, Creekmore said. 

Stevenson was taken to Doctors Medical Center, where he died. 

Investigators worked the case all night but still have not been able to establish a motive for the shooting, Creekmore said. 

Stevenson is the city's first homicide victim this year. Last year there were two homicides in San Pablo, Creekmore said. 

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department's investigation's bureau at (510) 215-3150.
