A 25-year-old man was fatally shot at a house party in the unincorporated Ladera Heights area of Los Angeles County, and the shooter remained at large Thursday.

Deputies assigned to the Marina del Rey station responded to a shots fired call in the 5800 block of Holt Avenue, near Slauson Avenue, about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday and found the victim, later identified by the coroner’s office as Los Angeles resident Jakeil Reynolds suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, according to Deputy James Nagao of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

An investigation determined Reynolds was attending a party at a home in the area when an argument occurred and he left the house, but was confronted again outside by the suspect and the pair began fighting. At some point, the suspect pulled a gun and shot Reynolds several times, Nagao said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, Nagao said.

A detailed description of the suspect was not available.

Anyone with information on the shooting was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500.
