LAPD investigating fatal shooting at downtown apartment complex
The Los Angeles Police Department is searching for a suspect who shot and killed a man at a downtown apartment complex Saturday afternoon.
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.
After a 45-minute sweep of the building, investigators determined that the suspect had fled, Graham said. Police have talked to witnesses and are reviewing surveillance footage from the apartment building, he added.
The shooting remains under investigation, police said.
