A man was gunned down in front of his wife on a street in Duarte. Authorities continued searching for the gunman Sunday.

Deputies said the man and his wife were getting out of two separate cars and preparing to walk to their front door when a white vehicle driving westbound on Bashor pulled up next to the victim and opened fire.

The man, whose identity was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was not hurt, sheriff's officials said.

Sheriff's officials did not release a description of the suspect or the suspect's vehicle.
