LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A man was shot to death early Monday morning in the Harvard Heights area of Los Angeles.

Police were called out just after midnight to 1257 South Manhattan Place, where officers found a man who had been shot several times on the sidewalk in front of an apartment building.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neighbors in the area had reported as many as five shots, Los Angeles police Lt. John Radtke said.

A white sedan with two people inside was seen speeding westbound on Pico Boulevard.

At a gas station across the street, detectives also searched a black BMW and had it towed away.

Coroner’s officials say they have not yet released the victim’s identity because they are still trying to track down his family.
