A man was shot Wednesday afternoon in the unincorporated Westmont area and died at a hospital.

Deputies from the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station responded about 1 p.m. to an assault with a deadly weapon call in the 11100 block of Manhattan Place, about two blocks from Western Avenue, and found the victim, who was unresponsive and had sustained gunshot wounds to his upper body, according to Deputy Eric Ortiz of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

A second victim, who had sustained a grazing gunshot wound to the lower body, was also found at the location. That victim was treated at the scene and released, Ortiz said.

There were no reports of arrests and a detailed description of the shooter was not immediately available.

The victims were not immediately identified.
