Authorities Tuesday were investigating what is believed to be a gang-related shooting in Bell that left one man dead.

Several men in a vehicle began arguing with a male pedestrian about 2:40 p.m. in the 5000 block of Gage Avenue, said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

One of the men got out the vehicle and approached the pedestrian, who shot the first man twice in the torso.  The victim was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
