LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Police today released surveillance video of two men described as persons of interest in the fatal shooting of a 40-year-old man who had left his South Los Angeles home one-morning last month on his way to work.
Officers responded about 7:45 a.m. on May 16 to a report of a shooting in the area of Fortuna Avenue and 57th Street, where they found the victim, later identified as Victor Orduna, suffering from a gunshot wound, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
Paramedics arrived and Orduna was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, police said.``Earlier, the victim had exited his residence and was on his way to work when the shooting occurred,'' according to a police statement. Detectives conducting a follow-up investigation obtained surveillance video that showed two men riding bicycles in the area both before and after the shooting, police said.
Both men are black and between 20 and 30 years old. One was riding a black fixie-type bicycle, so called because it has a single fixed gear, and the other, who was wearing an orange reflector vest, was on a peach- or pink-colored beach cruiser.
Anyone who recognizes either man or has information about the killing was urged to call homicide detectives at the LAPD's Newton Station at (323) 846-6556. Off-hours calls should be directed to (877) LAPD-24-7. Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers by calling (800) 222-TIPS or on the internet at laponline.org.
