There was no holiday Tuesday for police hunting two killers who gunned down a man in his 60s in Watts.
Paramedics rushed the bloody target to a hospital, but despite doctors’ best efforts, he died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
There were few additional details yet available. Authorities were trying to determine a motive for the shooting, as it wasn’t clear if the murder had been gang related.
So far the only information police disclosed was that the killers drove away from the murder scene in a white car after the shooting in broad daylight.
The gunfire was reported at 3:15 p.m. Monday in the area of 98th Street and Compton Avenue, according to Sgt. Shannon Hale of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southeast Station.
