ARTESIA (CBSLA) – A 33-year-old father was shot and killed on an Artesia street in the early morning hours Thursday.
The shooting occurred at around 2:30 a.m. in the 11800 block of 168th Street, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reports. One neighbor told CBS2 she heard eight to nine gunshots, while another reported hearing a car speeding away from the scene.
Deputies responded to 911 calls to find a man with at least one gunshot wound who had collapsed and died on the sidewalk, the sheriff’s department said. His name was not immediately release.
The victim’s 15-year-old daughter, Dalilah Alvarado, told CBS2 that her father resided in the area.
“They got somebody that wasn’t a gang member…that wasn’t doing anything wrong,” Alvarado said.
No suspect information or a possible motive has been released. Sheriff’s investigators were hoping to obtain security video from nearby businesses.
