ARCADIA (CBSLA.com) — Authorities said a man was fatally shot on a residential street in Arcadia Sunday.
Officers responded at 9:01 a.m. to a call of shots fired in the 1000 block of South Fifth Avenue, said Lt. Mike Castro of the Arcadia Police Department.READ MORE: Exclusive Video: Glenn Allen Brooks, 61, Of Huntington Beach Arrested Thursday In Connection To Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol Riot
The unidentified victim was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Castro said.
CBS2’s Laurie Perez reported from the scene, described as a normally quiet and safe area in a good neighborhood.
She spoke with a neighbor who said they saw surveillance video of the man walking down the street before a white vehicle approached him.
The man started running after a verbal exchange. That is when the neighbor told Perez the man was then gunned down.
Police said the man shot multiple times in the upper torso.
“At this time, we have no motives,” Castro said, “and we have not identified the victim or the suspect.”READ MORE: DUI Suspect Arrested In Deadly Traffic Collision That Killed 2 People On 110 Freeway In South LA Sunday
The victim was apparently on a stroll of the neighborhood and not carrying identification.
An investigation was ongoing.
“Something like this is definitely out of the ordinary,” Castro said.
Resident David Phung was also shocked by the crime.
“This is very surprising. This is homicide similar to a drive-by shooting type of event which we are certainly not accustomed to in Arcadia,” Phung said.
Officials on Sunday evening said the victim was believed to be an Arcadia resident in his mid-50s. His name is being withheld until his next of kin can be notified.MORE NEWS: LAPD Report On Echo Park Protest Says Better System For Tracking Projectiles And Dealing With Independent Journalists Needed
