Man Found Dead Near Silver Lake's Sunset Junction
"Drama in Sunset Junction. Police line up and lots of cop cars racing in circles up and down the streets," twittered Jeff Nicholas about his Silver Lake neighborhood last night. That's because around 7 p.m., a man's body was found in the middle of the 1100 block of Manzanita Street with a gun laying 15 feet away from him. It was first reported that he was possibly shot in the head, but ABC7 confirms "that the injury was not a gunshot wound." Nicholas later twittered "no gunshots heard around here.""They are investigating it as a homicide," LAPD Officer Karen Rayner told the LA Times. "It's a mystery right now," added a sergeant, speaking to The Eastsider LA.
The man is described as Latino and in his 30s or 40s. That particular block of Manzanita, which is near Sunset Junction, is a dead-end for vehicles with perpendicular alley access and a pedestrian staircase surrounded by a community garden.
