The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after a man was found dead in Whittier early Sunday morning.
Homicide investigators responded to the 11700 block of Fireside Drive around 5:30 a.m. and found an unresponsive 50-year-old man who had “sustained apparent blunt force traumatic injuries,” the LASD said in a press release.
He was transported to the hospital by ambulance and was pronounced dead.
“A person of interest has been detained,” the release added.
