The Los Angeles Police Department pleaded for tips from the public Sunday in the investigation of a fatal shooting in Pacoima.

Officers responded to a reported assault with a deadly weapon in the 13200 block of Cornelius Street at 10:45 p.m. Saturday, according to LAPD. They found Davon Pledger, a 26-year-old Van Nuys resident, lying on the ground and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
