A man was fatally shot Thursday afternoon in El Monte, but details were sketchy.
The shooting occurred about 2:10 p.m. in the 10000 block of Valley Boulevard, near Baldwin Avenue, according to Deputy James Nagao of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which was assisting the El Monte Police Department with the investigation.
The victim, who was not immediately identified, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Nagao said.
