A homicide investigation is underway Wednesday after a 19-year-old man was fatally shot in the Vermont Square neighborhood of South Los Angeles.
The shooting was reported near the intersection of West 40th Place and Menlo Avenue about 8:15 p.m., said Lt. Chuck Springer with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Officers found the teen with a gunshot wound on the front porch of a home, said Capt. Darnell Davenport with the Police Department.
The victim was taken to California Hospital Medical Center, where he died from his injuries, Springer said.
Investigators did not have a description of the gunman and were seeking witnesses to the shooting, Davenport said.
It was unclear if the shooting was gang related.
