LAPD seeks gunman in fatal 6th Street overpass shooting

Los Angeles police are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred under the 6th Street overpass in Boyle Heights on Friday night, authorities said.

Officers responded around 10 p.m. and found a 25-year-old man who had been shot multiple times, according to LAPD officer Norma Eisenman.

The victim was rushed to hospital, where she died, she said. His identity has not been revealed.

Police believe the victim and shooter were filming a video clip when an argument ensued. The assailant pulled out a gun and shot the man under the bridge in the 500 block of South Mission Road, Eisenman said.

The shooter – described by police as a Latino aged 18 to 20 – fled in a vehicle. Police did not provide details of his height or weight, the weapon or the vehicle.

The incident is still under investigation and is believed to be gang-related, Eisenman said.
