The Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release that investigators believe Odogwu Ganobi of Lowell was killed shortly after a heated exchange over a “traffic dispute” with two people whom he did not know.

Police believe one of the two people was a Hispanic man who is around 5-foot-7 and has a slender build, the DA’s Office said.

Police found Ganobi suffering from a gunshot wound at the intersection of Chelmsford Street and Maitland Avenue just after 7 p.m. Tuesday. He was taken to Lowell General Hospital before being transported to Tufts Medical Center where he died Wednesday morning.
