Sheriff’s Homicide investigators are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a 45 year old Black man in Compton. 

Deputies from Compton Station responded to the 200 block of North Bowen Avenue regarding a call of gunshots fired. Upon arriving, they discovered the victim in a driveway suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
