Homicide detectives are seeking the public’s help tracking down the gunman in a fatal shooting in L.A.’s Westlake neighborhood over the weekend.
Paramedics alerted police around 11:40 p.m. Saturday that a gunshot victim was found in the 300 block of Witmer Street, near the intersection of Third Street, according to a Los Angeles Police Department news release.
The victim, a Latino man in his 40s, had been shot in the torso. First responders took him to a hospital, where he died, officials said.
LAPD has not released the man’s name, and coroner’s officials could not immediately be reached for information.
Investigators have yet to compile a suspect description, and they’re hoping the public can provide clues in the case.
