Los Angeles police are searching for the killer of a 21-year-old man who was shot Saturday outside an apartment building in the city's Westlake district, authorities said.

The victim was at a party when the shooter opened fire at 12:28 a.m., said Lt. Ruby Malachi of the Los Angeles Police Department. A Los Angeles County coroner’s investigator identified the victim as Manuel Campos.

Malachi said detectives have identified a possible suspect, but are not releasing a name for fear of jeopardizing the investigation.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call the LAPD’s Rampart Division at (213) 484-3400 or the department’s tip line at (877) LAPD-24-7.
