A 24-year-old man was fatally shot Saturday night on First Street in East Los Angeles in the second deadly shooting of the holiday weekend. The victim was shot once in the upper torso by an unknown suspect at about 11:16 p.m. in the 4200 block of East First Street in unincorporated East Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Sheriffs Department. The man was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The Saturday night killing took place less than 24 hours after another East L.A. shooting left one man dead and another injured when gunfire broke out at a family party.
In addition to Saturday’s killings, four other murders have taken place in East Los Angeles so far this year, according to CrimeMapping.com.
