Homicide detectives with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department were investigating after a man’s body was found on a street in La Mirada on Sunday, officials said.
A Metro bus driver pulled up to a bus stop about 6:10 p.m. in the 14300 block of Alondra Boulevard, where he discovered the man’s body lying in the gutter of the roadway, according to a statement issued by the Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies responded after the driver contacted the Norwalk Sheriff’s Station.
The victim, who was described only as a male Hispanic adult, was pronounced dead at the scene.
“We don’t know if the body was dumped [or if] he was shot at the bench,” sheriff’s Lt. Dave Coleman said. “His body, obviously, is lying in the gutter and it’s surrounded by a substantial amount of blood. So it’ll take a little bit for us to figure out what his position was when he was killed and then, of course, how he was killed.”
Anyone with information was asked to contact the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
