Authorities were searching Monday for a suspect who shot and killed a man in Hawthorne in what they described as a gang-related crime.

The victim, described only as a Latino, was shot Sunday night outside an apartment complex in the 13500 block of South Yukon Street, said Sgt. Michael Thomas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

[Updated at 8:50 a.m.: At least 64 homicides have been reported within two miles of Sunday’s shooting since January 2007, according to coroner’s data collected for The Times’ interactive Homicide Report.]

The shooting was reported at 9:26 p.m., Thomas said.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff’s department was working with Hawthorne police detectives to find the gunman. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s detective bureau at (323) 890-5500.

Anonymous tips can be made at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).
