LAPD officers responded to a call of shots fired about 2:15 p.m. Saturday at the Gas Company Lofts building in the 800 block of South Flower Street, police said.

Officers found a 25-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound in a second-floor hallway, police Capt. Don Graham said.  

Police set up a perimeter around the block and officers from the department’s Metropolitan Division searched the 14-story building for any suspects, he said.
