Mysterious shooting leaves one dead; wounded man shows up at hospital

One dead in Pasadena park shooting; second man shows up at hospital with gunshot wound

Police are investigating a mysterious shooting at a Pasadena park Tuesday night. One man was found dead at the park, and a second man, with a gunshot wound, checked himself into a hospital hours later.

The shooting was reported about 10:20 p.m. at Villa Park near Marengo Avenue and Villa Street, and when officers arrived, they found a man in his 50s dead from apparent gunfire.

About two hours later and miles away, unknown to detectives working the crime scene, a man in his 30s walked into Huntington Hospital’s emergency room with a gunshot wound.

Nurses notified police, who believe he may have been involved in the shooting. It was unclear whether the man was a second victim in the incident or was involved in a different violent confrontation.

A witness told NBC4 that he heard up to nine gunshots. No arrests have been made and no motive has been determined.

Anyone with information is asked to call Pasadena police Lt. Diego Torres at (626)744-4517.
