Local news

An investigation is underway into the shooting death of a 30-year-old man who was found in a Rowland Heights intersection early Sunday morning.

Deputies responded to the area of Colima and Fullerton roads after getting a call about shots fired just before 2:40 a.m., according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department news release.

They arrived to find an unidentified man suffering from at least one gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the location.

Video from the scene showed first responders surrounding a person who was on the ground in the middle of the street.

Nearby, a luxury sports car could be seen stopped across a roadway with what appeared to be a bullet hole through its shattered driver-side window. The vehicle’s door beneath the window was also riddled with holes and the passenger-side door was swung open.

It’s unclear if the gunshot victim was the driver of the sports car. Officials have not confirmed whether the car is connected to the killing.

The Sheriff’s Department has not released information on any suspects in the killing and no further details were immediately available.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Those who prefer to provide information anonymously can call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
