Man Gunned Down in South L.A., Killers At Large

A man died in a shooting on a South Los Angeles street corner on Thursday evening, police said.

The deadly shooting took place about 6:40 p.m. at the northeast corner of Normandie and Florence avenues, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im said.

The victim, a man estimated to be in his 40s,  was believed to be standing next to a vehicle and talking to someone when he was shot, Capt. Billie Brockway of the LAPD’s South Bureau Homicide Division.

Officers responded to reports of “shots fired” to find the victim lying wounded, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, Brockway said. They performed CPR before paramedics ultimately pronounced the victim dead at the scene.
