Authorities on Sunday were searching for a suspect involved in the fatal shooting of a 35-year-old male pedestrian in the San Fernando Valley.

Officers responded to reports of gunfire Saturday about 10:30 p.m. near the intersection of Parthenia Street and Cedros Avenue in the Panorama City neighborhood, Los Angeles Police Sgt. Robert Gasior said.

The victim sustained one gunshot wound and was transported to Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills where he was pronounced dead, Gasior said. He was believed to have been standing on the sidewalk before he was approached. It was not known if the suspect had been on foot or in a vehicle.

The shooting was not believed to be gang-related. No other information was given.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call detectives with the Mission Community Police Station at (818) 838-9810.
