The coroner’s office Wednesday released the name of a man shot to death in Norwalk.

Jose Soto Jr., 26, was a Norwalk resident, coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz said.

Deputies responded at 4:50 p.m. Monday to a call of a gunshot victim in the 14300 block of Carmenita Road and located the person, who had suffered at least one gunshot wound to the upper body, Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

The victim now identified as Soto was pronounced dead at the scene, Navarro-Suarez said.

A preliminary investigation determined the victim was targeted by at least one suspect, but a detailed description of the shooter was not available and the murder weapon was not recovered, Navarro-Suarez said.

Anyone with information on this shooting was asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500 or Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
