PICO-UNION: Fatal Shooting

A male victim was gunned down near the intersection of Alvarado St and Olympic Bl in the Pico-Union area just West of Downtown Los Angeles. A young girl that was at the scene told me she heard two to three gunshots that she had confused with fireworks. Sadly it wasn’t and now a person lays dead on the street with no suspect description or motive are available at the moment. LAPD did find three bullet casings near the body signifying the victim was shot at close range. A guitar is also seen next to the light pole between where the bullet casing were found and the man. LAFD arrived and tried to render aid but it was too late. No further information available. LAPD is handling the investigation. Shot by: ALEX
