A 25-year-old man was killed early Monday when three masked men broke into his Garden Grove home and fatally shot him while looking for drugs and money, police said.
Shon Xavier Hall was specifically targeted by robbers who went to his home in the 9100 block of La Grand before dawn Monday, Garden Grove police said in a news release.
Hall's girlfriend called authorities around 4:07 a.m. to report her boyfriend had been shot, Lt. Carl Whitney told KTLA.
When the suspects broke into the home, the pair had been asleep in their bed. Hall's parents were also home.
Whitney said the masked suspects woke up Hall and asked him for money and drugs.
Hall, who police said was 23, tried to run out of the home after being shot but died in the driveway.
Neighbor Joe Stanley described the commotion he saw on his street shortly after the deadly home invasion.
"A lot of police officers were going between a couple houses, still looking for I guess the perpetrators from whatever was going on," Stanley told KTLA.
Stanley said when he approached a firefighter at the scene to ask what had happened, the response he got was, "You don't want to know."
Police said the three male suspects fled in a dark-colored vehicle. They are described as being African American and armed.
Detectives were canvassing the Garden Grove neighborhood Monday afternoon looking for witnesses and any video evidence.
Anyone with information about the fatal home invasion can contact Detective Steve Heine at 714-741-5422, or submit a tip anonymously via 855-847-6227.
