There were no witnesses when the body was found, police said.

About 2:45 a.m., people working in the 1900 block of West Orange Grove heard several gunshots but did not report them because they thought police would get other calls, according to the department.

Detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the shooting death to call them at (909) 620-2085. Anyone providing valuable information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects could be eligible for a $10,000 reward, according to the department.
