Investigators begin an investigation after a man is shot to death in El Monte

A man was shot fatally and could have died in El Monte, early Thursday.

The incident was reported about 4:45 a.m. along the 3000 block of Allgeyer Avenue, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

El Monte police officers responded immediately to a call about an unresponsive man. When they arrived they found the victim lying in the street with a gunshot wound, sheriff’s Lt. Hugo Reynaga told KTLA. The victim was awake and speaking to officers. However, he was concerned about his health.

Reynaga said that he was taken into a hospital and later died.

He was described as only 31 years old.

Surveillance video that is not being released apparently shows the victim being dropped off in a dark-colored sedan and left on the street, Reynaga said. The area was spotted by a man wearing a white T-shirt.

The vehicle was then seen moving south.

It is however not known where the victim was killed.  

There are no further details available about the incident. Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department homicide bureau at 323-890-5500.
