Police are searching for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a man in Huntington Beach on Monday night.

According to Jessica Cuchilla, public information officer for the HBPD, officers responded to reports of gunshots fired in the 5200 block of Tasman Drive (near Bolsa Chica Street) around 8 p.m.

Arriving officers found an unresponsive man with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Orange County Coroner’s office will release the identity of the victim after confirming the victim’s identity and notifying the next of kin.

The suspect is unidentified and remains at large, according to Cuchilla. Detectives are exploring the circumstances and possible motives for the shooting, but it’s believed there’s no danger to the public and the homicide was an “isolated incident.”

Anyone with information relating to the crime is asked to call the HBPD WeTip Hotline at (714) 375-5066.
