Police received a call around 2:20 a.m. Tuesday about a possible homicide in the parking lot of The College Inn, in the 8600 block of Lindley Avenue.
The victim, described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s to mid-30s, was found with a single gunshot wound to the neck, police said.
The bar was closed at the time, but there were some employees inside.
“At this point, the investigation is ongoing. We do not know the relationship between that individual and the bar,” LAPD Lt. Aaron Ponce said.
Officials also said there’s no indication that the victim was connected to CSUN.
No arrests have been made, and police have not released a suspect description at this time. They’re hoping that surveillance cameras might provide them with leads.
Anyone with information was asked to call the LAPD Devonshire Station at (818) 832-0633 or 1-877-ASK-LAPD.
