Homicide detectives were investigating after a man was fatally shot at a motel in Stanton Monday afternoon.

Officials were called around 1:15 p.m. about a disturbance at the Villa Motel on the 11600 block of Beach Boulevard, said Orange County Sheriff’s Lt. Nathan Wilson.

Responding deputies found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound.

First responders attempted life-saving efforts, but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene, Wilson said.

No identifying information on the victim was available Monday afternoon.

Detectives were also working to piece together information about the shooter, Wilson said, and no description of the person was available.

Wilson said few details were being released due to the active nature of the investigation.

One lane of Beach Boulevard was expected to be closed until around midnight while investigators process the scene.
