GARDEN GROVE (CBSLA) – Authorities are looking for three armed suspects who forced their way into a Garden Grove home and then shot a 25-year-old man to death early Monday morning.
The killing was reported at 4:07 a.m. at a home in the 9100 block of La Grand Avenue.
According to Garden Grove police, three masked men broke into the home and woke the man, later identified as Shon Xavier Hall of Garden Grove, and his girlfriend, demanding cash and drugs.
A fight ensued and Hall was shot several times, police said. The woman told investigators Hall made it outside, where he collapsed and died in the driveway.
Hall’s girlfriend said the suspects fled in a dark-colored vehicle.
One neighbor told CBS2 that, prior to the murder, she had always witnessed a great deal of activity at the home, with people coming and going at all hours, picking up and dropping off items.
It’s unclear what was stolen or whether the suspects or victims knew each other prior to the home invasion.
Detectives later determined that is was an isolated incident and the victim was specifically targeted for robbery.
As of Monday evening, the three suspects were still wanted and the investigation was on-going.
