A homicide investigation is underway Tuesday after a man was found shot to death inside a business complex in South Gate the night before.
South Gate police responded to the 9200 block of California Avenue just before 5 p.m. Monday following a “shots fired” call, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.
Arriving officers were directed inside the complex where they found a 40-year-old man suffering at least one gunshot wound.
The man, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
The building houses a smog check station, an accounting business and a boxing gym.
A small memorial consisting mostly of burning candles was set up on a street corner outside the complex.
No information on the gunman was immediately available and no weapon was recovered.
Anyone with information was asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 323-890-5500. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call “Crime Stoppers” at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
