Police are investigating after a man was shot in the head Tuesday night in Cathedral City. Sgt. Dane Dixon said the shooting happened in the 32400 block of Shifting Sands Trail just after 8 p.m.

Cathedral City police were called after residents in the area reported hearing six shots. Officers found a Hispanic man in his 20's lying on the ground on the northwest corner of Mission Indian Trail and Shifting Sands Trail.
