Police Say Man Shot Dead Outside Home May Have Been Burglar

PASADENA (CBS) — A man who may have been burglarizing a home or business was found shot to death in Pasadena Tuesday, and police were looking for the shooter.

Police sent to check out reports of gunfire found the fatally wounded man between a garage and a fence in the 100 block of Dearborn Street about 5:40 a.m. Monday, Craig Harvey of the coroner’s office said.

The man’s name was being withheld. Harvey said he was 43 years old. No hometown was given.

Pasadena police Lt. Phlunte Riddle said “it appears he may have been doing something illegal, but at this moment it’s a real whodunit.”

Anyone with more information about what happened was asked to call detectives at (626) 744-4241.
