Officials are looking for clues in a shooting that left a man dead Saturday night in San Pedro.

The man was struck by gunfire when an unknown suspect or suspects fired several rounds in the 2200 block of Mesa Street around midnight, said Sgt. Jerry Davila of the LAPD's Harbor station. 

The victim, a man in his 50s, was transported to a local hospital, where he died. There was no indication what the motive for the shooting might have been, Davila said.

Anyone with information about the killing was asked to call the Harbor station at (310) 726-7700.
