Lehigh County Coroner's Office Forensic Services at Allentown shooting scene

Lehigh County Coroner's Office Forensic Services on the scene of a shooting on East Fairmont Street in Allentown.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A man is dead after a shooting in an Allentown neighborhood Monday night.

Officers were called to the 1900 block of E. Fairmont Street around 9 p.m. for a report of a shooting, police said.

A neighbor says she heard the gunshots and rushed out of her home to find the man lying in the street.

"If his mom is watching, I want her to know that he was not alone. I stayed there with him. As a mom, it totally breaks my heart," said Laura Vito, through tears.

She said she immediately called 911, and the dispatcher walked her through how to help the man, but it was too late.

"She just kept talking to him and then after a few seconds, he stopped breathing and he was gone," said another neighbor.

Responding police officers found the man dead, Allentown police said.

The Lehigh County coroner's office responded to the scene, as did the county district attorney's office.

Police placed more than two dozen evidence markers near the scene.

"Nobody should be shot on the street multiple times like that," said Vito. "There was so much blood."

A nearby home's surveillance camera was activated by motion, and the video shows two people talking to each other on a dirt bike. They cut out of frame, and minutes later, the video picks up with commotion down the block.

"They were trying to get out of there fast, but the dirt bike wasn't starting. They had trouble starting it," said the neighbor, who didn't want to say their name.

Authorities have not commented on whether those people seen in the video are connected to the shooting.

Allentown police have not commented further on what happened, and the Lehigh County district attorney's office has not released information.

After an autopsy Tuesday morning, the coroner's office identified the man as Hansan Gordon, 27, of Bethlehem.
