Homicide detectives are investigating after a man was found shot to death this morning near the Compton-Long Beach border.
Police have not announced a possible motive in the shooting, but said the victim appeared to have been targeted.
The victim was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said a group of people were entering a park and ride lot when the shots were fired.
Police said three men were “engaged in a transaction involving the sale of a large quantity of marijuana for cash,” when the gunfire started.
“We believe that a vehicle of some sort pulled up and asked the victim where she was from and shots were fired,” a sheriff’s lieutenant said.
The shooting happened in the 300 block of West Johnson Street, about a mile west of the Compton-Long Beach border.
Landis Lim was playing video games in a friend’s garage in Cambodia Town when he was killed last week, according to witnesses.
The shooting appeared to have occurred as the man struggled with two men during a robbery, although that has not been confirmed, police said.
