A 33-year-old man was killed Saturday in a gang-related shooting in East Hollywood, police said.

The body of Saul Ayala was found in the 4500 block of Clinton Street about 11:30 p.m. after Los Angeles police officers responded to a call of shots fired in the neighborhood, said Officer Gregory Baek.

Two unidentified suspects were seen fleeing the scene.

Ayala was a known gang member, Baek said. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds, including one to the neck, Baek said.
