LAKE LOS ANGELES – Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a Lake Los Angeles man found unresponsive on the street in front of his home Tuesday evening.
The victim, a man in his 70s whose name has not yet been released, was pronounced dead at the scene, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Wednesday morning.
The incident was reported around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau.
“Deputies responded to a ‘family disturbance’ call at a residence in the 41300 block of 151st Street East, Lake Los Angeles,” the news release states. “Upon their arrival, they saw the victim lying on the street in front of his home. The victim was unconscious and unresponsive.”
Deputies performed CPR until paramedics arrived, and then paramedics performed life-saving measures. Ultimately they pronounced the victim dead at the scene, officials said in the news release.
“A preliminary examination revealed that the victim may have suffered from some form of blunt force trauma to his head,” the news release states. “Although witnesses heard the victim and his 38-year-old son arguing earlier, it is still unclear how and when the victim received his injuries.”
No arrest had been made as of Wednesday morning, and no further information was available.
