Man shot 9 times outside his home in Reseda; suspect on the run

A man is dead after being shot just steps away from his home. 

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call of a shooting in the 7500 block of Jamieson Avenue, near White Oak Ave and Saticoy St, in Reseda around 7:15 p.m. Monday. 

Police say the gunman pulled up in a black BMW and opened fire. While trying to get away, the victim gets out of his work van but was untimely shot multiple times.

"He tried to save his life so he jumped out and he got shot in the head two times. The third time he was on the floor already, so they keep going and he shoots him again," a resident told FOX 11. 

About a minute later, neighbors ran out yelling to call 911. His fiancé was inside the house during the shooting. 

"I know him for a long time and he was a very nice guy, he never got into problems, I never see a fight in this street. I don't know why this happened. It's unbelievable," the neighbor added. 

At least nine shots were heard on the audio from surveillance video shared by neighbors. 

Neighbors don't recognize the black BMW but say they've seen a similar car on the road several times since. Now many people who live on the block are on the edge and fearful the suspect may come back. 

The victim's identity has not been released, but police say he is in his 60s. The suspect is believed to be a 20-year-old man.

The motive for the shooting remains unclear at this time.
