Multiple gun shot wounds killed Laguan in Pasadena

Marvin Laguan, the 18-year-old Alhambra man shot and killed in the 400 block of North Mar Vista Avenue in Pasadena, died from multiple gun shot wounds to his torso, according to a report released Monday by the Los Angeles County Office of Coroner. 

Laguan was killed Aug. 22 while talking to his girlfriend along North Mar Vista Avenue, according to witnesses.

Two men, described as male blacks in their early 20s ranging in height from 5 feet, 8 inches to 6 feet tall approached Laguan, exchanged words with the victim before firing several shots. The suspect fled west toward Wilson Avenue in Pasadena, according to the Pasadena Police Department.

Laguan was known to have a gang affiliation, but it remains unclear whether his slaying was gang-related, officials said.
