Tustin police officers were sent an apartment in the area of Los Feliz Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, Lt. Robert Wright of the Tustin Police Department told KTLA. The exact address was not provided by police.

It was uncertain if the suspected gunman was in the apartment, police said, but neighbors were being evacuated.

SWAT officers left the scene just after midnight without locating the suspected gunman, Tustin Police Sgt. Birozy said.

The Los Feliz search was prompted by a shooting that took place Sunday about 3:56 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 1600 block of Mitchell Avenue. Tustin police arrived and found a man suffering from one gunshot wound.

Police said the man was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

The gunman fled the area.

The suspects in the shooting were described as Hispanic men in their 20s.

Detectives were working on determining the relationship between the victim and the suspects.

The shooting was being investigated as gang-related.
