A man was gunned down in the street in South Los Angeles today in an apparent gang-related shooting, and sheriff’s detectives were searching for the shooter.

The killing took place about 4:30 a.m. in the 1200 block of East 59th Street in an unincorporated section of Los Angeles, Deputy Trina Schrader said.
