VENICE, Calif. – A 57-year-old man was behind bars Thursday after surrendering to authorities in connection with a fatal shooting in Venice.
Donald Ray Boyce surrendered to Los Angeles Police Department officers Tuesday and was booked on suspicion of murder, police said. He was being held in connection with the Sunday shooting death of a man in the 400 block of Indiana Avenue, according to the LAPD.
Detectives responded to the scene around 6 p.m. Sunday and found the victim — a man in his 50s — suffering from gunshot wounds. Some civilians at the scene were already tending to the victims, but police took over they arrived until Los Angeles Fire Department crews took him to a hospital, where he later died.
Police said the shooting appeared to be tied to a “family violence situation” among adults who did not live in the area where the shooting occurred.
Boyce was being held in lieu of $2 million bail.
Anyone with information regarding the fatal shooting was asked to contact LAPD West Bureau Homicide detectives at 213-382-9470. Callers who choose to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
