CYPRESS PARK — One man was shot and killed Saturday night near the Heritage Square Gold Line Station, police said.
The victim, described as a male black in his 60s, was shot at about 11 pm near Pasadena and French Avenues, said LAPD spokeswoman Rosario Herrera. However, TV news clips show the victim nearby at the corner of French and Marmion Way.
The victim was approached by a group of three Latino males, one of whom opened fire. Herrera said. It’s not clear what prompted the shooting or if it’s gang related, she said.
The shooting prompted Metro to close of the Heritage Square station for several hours and run a temporary bus shuttle service.
KTLA reported that a second shooting about an hour later in Highland Park in the 5100 block of Baltimore Avenue. The man’s condition was not known, and it’s not known if the shootings are related.
