East Los Angeles -- A 23-year-old man found lying in a street Thursday night died at a hospital from injuries suffered in an apparent gang-related attack, authorities said today.

Deputies responded to the intersection of Bonnie Beach Place and Sixth Street, south of the Pomona (60) Freeway, at 7:45 p.m. Thursday for a call of an assault with a deadly weapon and found the victim down and unresponsive, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The victim was taken to a hospital where he died from what appeared to be blunt force trauma, authorities said.

A suspect - a male Latino, of unknown age - was last seen running from the intersection. A detailed description was not immediately available.

The name of the victim has not been disclosed.
