Long Beach police are investigating the death of a man found shot inside a residence Tuesday, they said.

Officers were called to the 1000 block of Gaviota Avenue shortly after 3 a.m. to assist the Long Beach Fire Department with a report of a "person down," the Long Beach Police Department said.

The victim, described only as a man with a gunshot wound to his upper body, was declared dead at the scene.
