Body of South Pasadena man found shot, burned in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — A body found shot and burned in Los Angeles was identified Wednesday as that of a 20-year-old South Pasadena man, authorities said.
Leeban Hassan Adan was pronounced dead at the scene, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Lt. Joe Bale said.
A passerby called police about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday to report finding the body in Hermon Park, in the 5500 block of Via Marisol, Los Angeles police Officer Rosario Herrera said.
“Police received a radio call and discovered a male black, burned, with a gunshot wound to the upper torso,” she said.
Information about a motive or suspect description was not available Wednesday, Herrera said.
An autopsy will likely be carried out by Friday, Bale said.
The park where the body was found is just over two miles from Adan’s hometown of South Pasadena, just off the 110 Freeway.
