Los Angeles:  Two suspects are wanted for the shooting death of an unidentified man, whom they robbed as he lay dying in the street.

Doe tried to run away from the suspects, but only made it a short distance before one of the suspects fired multiple shots, striking Doe in the back.  Doe fell between two parked cars.  As he lay dying, the suspect who shot Doe then proceeded to search his pockets and rob him, while a second suspect stood watch at the corner.  Both suspects were last seen running northbound through an alley east of Vermont Avenue, then east on 52nd Street.

Doe was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.  He is a Hispanic man, approximately 25-years of age.  He had no identification on him and the Coroner is in the process of making a positive identification.

Suspect #1 is as a male, Black, 20-30 years of age, 5 ft. 10 in. to 6 ft. tall, 170 lbs. and was wearing a black, white and red shirt tank top and blue jeans.
