A man was shot dead in Bellflower Saturday night and homicide investigators are trying to determine what led to the deadly shooting.
The shooting was reported around 8:45 p.m. near the intersection of Alondra Boulevard and Eucalyptus Avenue.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, deputies found a man in his 20s lying unresponsive on the sidewalk suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
The man was declared dead at the scene, the Sheriff’s Department said. His name has not yet been released.

After the shooting, both fled the scene on foot running south on Eucalyptus Avenue. At this time, the Sheriff’s Department has not released a description of the shooting suspects.
