Man Killed in North Hollywood Shooting

Police Monday sought the public's help in identifying as many as four suspects involved in the killing of a 44-year-old man who was shot in the back in North Hollywood.

It happened about 9:15 p.m. Sunday at Saticoy Street and Bellaire Avenue, according to Sgt. Catherine Leon of the Los Angeles Police Department's North Hollywood Station.

"Witnesses observed a fight in the street and then heard three gunshots," Leon said.

Officers found the victim lying face-down on the corner suffering from a gunshot wound.

Two to four men fled the scene, according to various witness accounts, Leon said.

The getaway vehicle was possibly a white Honda four-door sedan, according to police.

The victim, whose name was being withheld pending family notifcation, died at a hospital, Leon said.
