Echo Park shooting leaves one dead

 Echo Park shooting leaves one dead  photoPolice tonight are investigating the fatal shooting of a man whose body was found near a homeless encampment in Echo Park. The victim tumbled partway down a hillside after being shot once in the upper body near a cul de sac  at Bellevue Avenue and Alvarado Street, said Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division. It’s not clear if the shooting, which was reported at about 6:30 p.m., is gang related or if the victim was a homeless man.

Witnesses told police that the victim, who appeared to be a 30-year-old Latino male, had been seen at least once before talking to people at the encampment of tents that line the hill up from Bellevue Avenue near the  Bellvarde studio complex, Buhrmester said. No suspects were in custody as of about 8:30 p.m. and a police dog had been brought in to search for a weapon.
