A gunshot victim was dumped on an El Monte street early Thursday morning, May 5, and later died at a hospital.

Detectives believe the man had been shot somewhere else and not in the 3000 block of Allgeyer Avenue where he was found, sheriff’s Lt. Hugo Reynaga said.

Officers were on Valley Boulevard on an unrelated burglary alarm call when police dispatch told them there was a 911 call at 4:44 a.m. on Allgeyer.

Police found the wounded man in the gutter, near a business, Reynaga said.

Detectives found a video that shows what looked like a dark-colored sedan heading south on Allgeyer from Valley Boulevard, Reynaga said.

The car pulls up in front of a business. The front passenger steps out and pulls the victim out of the back seat, the lieutenant said. They left the victim and drove off.

The front passenger was only described as a man wearing a white T-shirt.

The coroner had not yet publicly identified the victim. Sheriff’s homicide detectives are assisting El Monte police with the investigation.

Investigators are looking for surveillance videos showing Allgeyer and Valley, Reynaga said.

Sheriff’s detectives asked that anyone with information about the shooting to call them at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tipsters can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or at
