*Update* #LASD Homicide Shooting Death Investigation, 400 blk E Camino Real, Duarte

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a male adult that occurred on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 9:08 p.m.
 
Homicide detectives have learned that Temple Station deputies responded to the 400 block of East Camino Real, Duarte, regarding an “assault with a deadly weapon, gunshot victim” call.  Upon their arrival, they found the victim, a male Hispanic adult, suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper torso. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
 
Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was walking north on Flagstone Avenue with another male and female, both Hispanics, when they were confronted on foot by two male Black adult suspects as they reached East Camino Real.  At least one of the suspects shot at the victims before fleeing the scene in a grey Honda.
 
The two other victims ran from the scene and called 9-1-1.  They were not injured.
 
The incident appears to be gang related.
 
There is no additional suspect or vehicle description.
 
The weapon has not been recovered.
