Man Gunned Down in Montebello on Via Altamira

A young man was gunned down today in the courtyard of
an apartment complex in Montebello.
The victim was with a group of acquaintances about noon in the 600 block
of Via Altamira when a male suspect approached on foot and fired several
shots, according to Montebello police.
Officers responding to a shots-fired call found the man suffering from
multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect fled in an unknown direction, and a detailed description was
not immediately available.
Investigators do not believe the victim was a random target, according
to a Montebello police lieutenant. No motive was being ruled out, including the
possibility that the shooting was gang-related, he said.
Anyone with information about the killing was urged to call Montebello
police investigators at (323) 887-1313.
