Authorities searched Tuesday for whoever shot a man to death in East Los Angeles.

The shooting was reported about 7:30 p.m. Monday in the 500 block of South Williamson Avenue, said Deputy Kimberly Alexander of the LA Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

The victim, estimated to have been around 25 years old, was walking with two other people on Gerhart Avenue when a gray sedan slowed down and someone inside fired on them, Alexander said.

The victim staggered to Williamson Avenue, where he collapsed. He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead from a single gunshot wound to the upper body, Alexander said. It was not immediately known if the two people who were with the victim were struck by gunfire, she said.

The whereabouts of the shooter and the victim’s companions are not known, Alexander said.
