Hermon -- Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man this morning near Avenue 60 and Monterey Road.

LAPD spokesman Tony Im and the LAPD Hollenbeck Division Watch Commander said officers responded to a call of shots fired shortly before 8 am and found a man on the ground with a gunshot wound.

The man, who was believed to be 55 years old, was unconscious and not breathing, said Im. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

A photo posted on Twitter showed police next to the Hermon Dog Park off of Avenue 60.

The shooting in Hermon comes one day after a separate shooting left one man dead about a mile away in Highland Park. That shooting is believed to be gang related.
