A Pasadena man who was shot and killed in a residential area of the city was publicly identified Sunday morning.

Ernesto Jimenez was 27, according to the coroner.

Officers responded to several calls of shots fired in the 200 block of Parke Street, south of Orange Grove Boulevard, at 8:10 p.m. Friday and found the man dead on the sidewalk, according to the Pasadena Police Department.

A preliminary investigation determined Jimenez was walking along the south sidewalk on Parke Street when the suspect or suspects fired several shots at him, striking him numerous times in the upper body, police said, adding he attempted to run but collapsed due to his injuries.

A motive for the shooting and description of the shooter or shooters was not available.

The homicide was the fourth of the year in Pasadena, matching last year’s total, Pasadena Police Department Lt. Jesse Carrillo told City News Service.

Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Pasadena police at 626-744-4241. Anonymous tips can be called in to Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
