COVINA - A man died at a hospital Sunday afternoon, the victim of a shooting that likely started from a group argument, police said.
The shooting unfolded in the area of East Wanamaker Drive and North Nearglen Avenue. Officers arrived to a report of a man shooting and a report of a man down and found a victim with multiple gunshot wounds to his back, according to Lt. Ryan Davis of the Covina Police Department.
The victim was only described as a Hispanic man in his 30s, Davis told SGV CityWatch.
Police were called to the scene at 12:22 p.m. The victim was found on a breezeway between two apartment buildings, according to Sgt. Keith Sutherland of the Covina Police Department.
At least four people were involved in the incident. One of the suspects was taken into custody, but Sutherland declined to provide booking information.
Davis did not immediately know what led to the argument, but said there was evidence that multiple people were firing at each other.
Two homes were struck by gunfire. There was no evidence of additional injuries.
Anyone with information on the shooting is urged to call Covina Police Detective Gonzales at 626-384-5622, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
