Police Find 1 Dead, 1 Wounded in Empty Lot

July 16, 2001|From Times Staff Reports

An unidentified man was found shot to death and another wounded in a vacant lot, police said Sunday.

Residents heard shots about 12:10 p.m. in the 100 block of West Whittier Boulevard, Police Lt. Steven Costanzo said.

One man was found dead, and the second who suffered a gunshot wound was taken to Western Medical Center-Santa Ana. Police did not identify either man.

The lot is a former gas station, Costanzo said.

Deputies from the coroner's office were dispatched to the scene, but reassigned to an officer-involved fatal shooting in another part of the city. Because of that, police had only sketchy details of this case, Costanzo said.
