Man's body found in Rose Bowl parking lot
A man in his 30s was found shot to death Monday near the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
The body was discovered in parking Lot I about 5 a.m., said officials with the Pasadena Police Department. There were no immediate reports of arrests or potential suspects.
Neighbors in the area reported hearing shots fired about 3 a.m. near the 1000 block of Armada Drive, not far from the scene, said Lisa Rosales, a spokeswoman for the police department.
A city worker found the man's body lying face up on a grassy area of the lot near Seco Street, authorities said.
Paramedics arrived shortly afterward and pronounced him dead, Rosales said.
Police were treating the man's death as a homicide and were searching for physical evidence, including a vehicle with Ohio license plates that was parked 200 feet from the body.
