Victor Luis Figueroa, a 47-year-old Latino, was shot and killed Wednesday, Aug. 29, in the 8000 block of Garvey Avenue in Rosemead, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy was driving west on Garvey Avenue about 11 p.m. when he heard gunshots ahead of him, said Lt. Joe Mendoza.

Figueroa was pronounced dead at the scene at 11:09 p.m., according to coroner’s records. The cause of death was listed as multiple gunshot wounds.
