The unidentified man lay unconscious with a gunshot wound upon the officer's arrival and was declared deceased at the scene, a stark reminder of the violence that can erupt in the quietest of hours. No suspect has been identified in connection to the shooting, and authorities are working to notify the victim's next of kin, reported KTLA.

The investigation is ongoing and police are urging anyone with information to step forward and help bring justice to the yet unspoken story of the man slain on the sidewalk.
