Man Found With Fatal Gunshot Wound in Azusa Apartment Building

Authorities are investigating the shooting of a man who died at an apartment building in Azusa Wednesday morning.

Azusa police received multiple reports of shots fired in the area of a two-story building in the 600 block of North Rockvale Avenue just after 12:30 a.m., the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department stated in a news release.

One caller said his or her apartment might have been hit by gunfire, officials said. Police responded to the scene and found a man on the front doorstep with at least one gunshot wound, according to the Sheriff's Department.

The unidentified victim, described as a Hispanic man in his mid-30s, was pronounced dead at the scene, the Sheriff's Department stated.

Video from the scene showed several evidence markers near the victim’s body, which was on the second floor of the building.

It was unclear if the victim was a resident of the building.

No motive for the shooting has been determined and it was unclear if the shooter was still outstanding.

Investigators are hopeful that nearby businesses will be able to provide surveillance video.

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 800-222-8477.
