PASADENA ( — Officials in Pasadena are asking the public to avoid the area between Lincoln Ave and Mentone and Montana and Idaho, following a shooting Tuesday morning.

Around 11:10 a.m., Pasadena Police responded to the 1900 block of Newport Avenue regarding gunshots heard in the area.

They found two people wounded by gunfire, one critically. A second victim died at the hospital.

Reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, Andrea Fujii said police are being unusually tight-lipped about the incident.
