A man was fatally wounded today in a shooting in the Cypress Park area, authorities said.

The attack — it was not immediately determined who carried it out — took place in the 600 block of San Fernando Road near Figueroa Street about 2:30 a.m., said Sgt. Tiffany Ljubetic of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Northeast Station. She said the victim, who was wounded, was found by officers, then transported to a hospital.

The man, who was in his 20s, was later pronounced dead at the hospital, said Officer Drake Madison, an LAPD spokesman.

A man wearing a dark hoodie was seen running from the shooting site through a nearby mobile home park, police said.

The motive for the homicide was not known.

An LAPD command post was being set up at the intersection of West Avenue 27 and McClure Street as the shooter was being sought.
