The body of a man who died from multiple gunshot wounds was discovered in a Baldwin Park neighborhood, prompting the sheriff’s SWAT team to surround a nearby home for several hours Tuesday, sheriff’s officials said.
Jacob Sosa, 37, of Baldwin Park was found dead in the 3000 block of Cosbey Street about 8:20 p.m. Monday, according to the coroner’s office and Lt. Dave Coleman of the L.A. Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.
After the discovery of the body, two suspects were seen running northbound on Earl Avenue, Coleman said.
The victim’s family lives in a home on Cosbey, Coleman said. But investigators developed information that people connected with the shooting lived in a nearby house in the 13200 block of Earl Avenue.
Investigators obtained a warrant to search the home and, because a gun had been used in the homicide, the SWAT team was called to surround the property, Coleman said. After several hours, investigators were able to execute their warrant.
“They detained several individuals,” he said.
The investigation was continuing.
