Police are searching for at least one suspect after a deadly shooting Monday in Los Angeles’ harbor region that killed two men, authorities confirmed to KTLA.
Calls about the shooting in the 1000 block of East M Street, near Sanford Street, in Wilmington came in at around 5:15 p.m.
Details are limited and it’s unclear what led to the shooting, but authorities said a 40-50-year-old man and a second unidentified male, also 40-50 years old, were suffering from gunshot wounds when they arrived.
One of the victims was declared dead at the scene by paramedics with the Los Angeles Fire Department. The second victim was taken to the hospital where they later died of their injuries.
Aerial footage of the scene captured by Sky5 showed a heavy presence of first responders, as well as a canopy, typically used when there is a death investigation, set up at the location.
The shooting suspect, described a Hispanic male, approximately 25 years old, standing 5 foot 9 inches tall with black hair and wearing a white ski mask with a skeleton face on it, was last seen going east on M Street toward Watson Avenue, authorities said.
Police have not released the identities of the two male victims.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department.
