Police are investigating the shooting death of a 20-year-old Juan Carlos Alquisira, who was gunned down in front of a Glassell Park residence on Monday evening.
Officers and paramedics went to 3208 Division Street after receiving calls from several witnesses about the shooting 8:20 p.m. on Monday, said LAPD Homicide Detective Ubaldo Zesati.
Alquisiria was transported by paramedics to Los Angeles County/USC Medical Center in Boyle Heights, where he was pronounced dead.
Zesati said officers believe the shooting to be gang-related.
In a Wednesday afternoon interview, Zesati was unable to provide few further details, other than to say police believe Alquisira was accompanied by someone at the shooting who left the scene before authorities arrived.
"We're hoping that person, or any other witnesses, can please come forward," Zesati said.
Zesati said police are seeking a single suspect, who he could only describe as a male.
Police ask that anyone with any further information about this shooting contact LAPD Northeast Homicide Division at 323-344-5744.
