A man is dead and a teen boy is wounded after a shooting in Pasadena Monday night.
The shooting on West Hammond Street was reported at about 7:45 p.m. by the Pasadena Police Department’s ShotSpotter gunshot detector and by several neighbors who phoned police, the department said in a news release.
The man, later identified as 26-year-old Cecilio Hernandez Ramirez Jr. of Pasadena, was shot multiple times and was found unresponsive in an apartment complex parking lot, police said.
He was taken to a local hospital in grave condition and was pronounced dead there.
“As officers were establishing a crime scene, a second victim from the shooting arrived at the same local hospital via private transportation,” police said. “The second victim, a juvenile male, had sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.”
A motive for the shooting has not been established, and the investigation is ongoing.
