The Santa Barbara Police Department has just released the name of a man shot to death last week in the city.

Detectives are releasing little information about the case, but now say that Kelly Mitchell Hunt of Ventura was the victim of the incident.

Officers were called to the 1000 block of Olive Street just after 7 p.m. on February 19th. They found a 21 year old man with multiple gunshot wounds on the ground. He was pronounced dead at a hospital less than an hour later.

No arrests have been made in the case. Investigators are seeking the public’s help, noting that Hunt wasn’t known to spend time in Santa Barbara, and they’re trying to figure out why he was in the city.
