WILMINGTON, Calif. -- (KTLA) -- A man who was killed in a drive-by shooting after he left a cousin's baby shower in Wilmington over the weekend has been identified as a 31-year-old father of two with another baby on the way.

Julio Cesar Urbina was walking on a sidewalk in the 1500 block of Young Street around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when a vehicle drove by and someone inside opened fire on the victim, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Rosario Cervantes told KTLA on Monday.

Urbina had just left a family baby shower and was one house away from his own home when the shooting took place, according to a GoFundMe account set up to help pay funeral expenses.

The baby shower had already ended, but some partygoers had stayed behind for drinks, Juan Urbina, the victim's brother, told KTLA.

After hearing shots fired, relatives and neighbors ran outside to find out Julio lying on the sidewalk, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Paramedics responded and pronounced him dead at the scene, Cervantes said.
