RESEDA (CNS) – Authorities today identified a man who was fatally shot in Reseda.
Officers sent to the 18000 block of Saticoy Street around 12:50 a.m. Friday found the mortally wounded man lying near a tree, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
Earl Hunter, 31, died at a hospital, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office. His city of residence was not known.
Police have released few details of the investigation, and it was unclear if the killing was related to a shooting about an hour earlier in the 18500 block of Sherman Way.
In that crime, two men were shot during an attempted robbery by three suspects near a tattoo shop, according to police and reports from the scene. The wounded men were treated at a hospital and released, police said.
Police determined the three suspects — two of whom were armed — got out of a gray sedan and confronted the victims. One suspect attempted to grab a victim’s necklaces and remove them from his neck immediately before the shooting.
