A man was fatally shot last night while he walked down a street in the Los Angeles Police Department's Harbor Area. Juan Zarate, 42, was gunned down by a pair of assailants who approached the victim on foot and fired several shots at him with a pistol and a shotgun, say the LAPD.

Detectives are hoping the public can provide information about the shooters in what they are calling a "cold blooded murder." The suspects, described as two Hispanic males, fled the scene on the 900 block of Lakme Avenue on foot, and took off inside a white sedan.

Anyone with information about killing of Zarate Monday night is asked to contact the LAPD.
