(June 30, 2020. 5:40 p.m.) --In a release today (June 30), LBPD describes a horrific scene at Orange Ave./South St. -- with multiple shooters firing at people attending a vigil for a man shot to death at the location a day earlier.

"The Communications Center advised the Police Department they could hear shots being fired and people screaming in the background, with numerous calling parties also reporting multiple shots being fired," LBPD's release said and continued:

The preliminary investigation revealed a group of subjects, related to the vigil, were involved in a dispute with a local resident. The dispute escalated into the residentís window being broken and then into a shooting with multiple suspects firing in different directions. The exact motive for the shooting is currently unknown, however, the incident is being investigated as gang-related. Detectives are actively working to gather additional information to further the ongoing investigation.

LBPD asks anyone with information about what took place to contact LBPD Homicide Detectives Adrian Garcia and Sean Magee at (562) 570-7244. Anonymous tips may be submitted through "LA Crime Stoppers" by calling 800-222-TIPS (8477), downloading the "P3 Tips" app to your smartphone (available at the Apple app store or Google Play), or by visiting www.crimestoppers.org.
