An investigation was underway Monday into the death of a 23-year-old man gunned down at an Arcadia house party.

The shooting was reported at 8:49 p.m. Sunday in the 2800 block of Caroline Way, according to Arcadia police Lt. Kollin Cieadlo.

“It looked like some type of argument led to a shooting,” Cieadlo said.

Arcadia officers who responded to a shots-fired call found the victim — whose name was not immediately released — on the rear patio with multiple gunshot wounds to the upper body. He was taken by paramedics to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The shooting happened during a house party attended by “roughly 25” guests, Cieadlo said. “It looked like a rental (house).”

A 23-year-old man was detained for questioning, then arrested by Arcadia police on unrelated charges, according to Trina Schrader of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau. His relationship, if any, to the victim was unclear.

Sheriff’s homicide investigators are assisting Arcadia police in the shooting investigation.
