Police asked the public for help Monday in their search for a gunman who fatally shot a motorcyclist in Wilmington the night before.
The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of West D Street and Gulf Avenue, said Sgt. Pinel with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Responding officers found the motorcyclist, later identified by the Police Department as 34-year-old Julio Cesar Pena, down in the street with multiple gunshot wounds, Pinel said.
Paramedics with the Los Angeles Fire Department pronounced Pena dead at the scene, according to a news release from LAPD.
Investigators believe the gunman approached Pena, who was riding his motorcycle home, while he was at a four-way stop.
The gunman stepped off the curb and shot Pena several times before Pena lost control of his motorcycle, the new release stated.
No details on the gunman or a motive for the shooting were immediately available.
Anyone with information was asked to contact investigators at 310-726-7882, or 310-726-7880.
