Police are asking for the public’s help in providing more information on a shooting that claimed the life of a 26-year-old man in Highland Park Tuesday night.

Police today identified the victim as Conrad Gomez, who was found in a driveway on the 6000 block of Fayette Street not far from thoroughfare York Boulevard with multiple gunshot wounds at about 9:25 p.m. Tuesday night, according to the LAPD. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
