Residents said they saw a small group of young people standing by a grassy area next to their home. They were staring at the body of a young man shot to death.

"My heart was pumping. I didn't know I was going to be seeing that," said neighbor Mirna Glover.

Police said the victim was a 20-year-old male from the West Covina area.

Neighbor Justine Ochoa said she heard gunshots late last night.

"It was about 11 o'clock, me and my mom got home around 10:30, and I was ready to go to sleep, and then I heard a gunshot, I heard one, and then a pause, and then I heard another one," she said.

Police need the public's help finding the suspects.

Anyone with information is urged to call the West Covina Police Department at (626) 939-8557.
