LONG BEACH (CBS)  — Long Beach police asked for the public’s help Monday in solving the fatal shooting of a 29-year-old Los Angeles man.

Police and firefighters were sent about 10:30 p.m. Thursday to an alley in the 1500 block of Pine Avenue after a passer-by found the man, police said.

The victim, who was shot once in the upper body, died the next day at a hospital. He was identified as Philip Victor Williamson.
