Conrado Omar Santos, 38

Conrado Santos, a 38-year-old Latino, was fatally shot Monday, Aug. 16, in the 15000 block of Gale Avenue in Hacienda Heights, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Santos was in his residence about 8:50 p.m. when someone entered the home, said Ed Winter, spokesman for the coroner's office.

While Santos exited the back door, he was shot, Winter said. Authorities were called and he was pronounced dead at the scene. It was not clear from information available to the coroner whether Santos knew the assailant.

Sheriff's homicide Det. Steve Blagg, who is handling the case, referred questions to a department spokesperson, refusing to comment on the coroner's description of the incident. Blagg said no arrest has been made in connection with Santos' death.

A media news release had no additional details.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Dets. Blagg or Jeff Cochran at (323) 890-5500.
