A man was shot to death and another was wounded Saturday in an attack at an Irvine residence, authorities said.
Officers were called at about 5:45 a.m. to a residence on Bayleaf Lane, Irvine police Lt. Dave Klug said. They found a man outside the residence who said he was the victim of an assault and told officers another man was injured inside the residence, Klug said.
"Officers entered the residence on Bayleaf Lane and located a second adult male who sustained multiple gunshot wounds,'' he said.
Paramedics took both victims to hospitals where the gunshot victim was pronounced dead, Klug said. While not disclosing the nature of the other man's injuries, the lieutenant said they are not life-threatening.
