La Mirada~Authorities have identified a man apparently shot to death while sitting on a bus bench on Alondra Boulevard just east of Heron Avenue this past Sunday night.
The coroner’s office said yesterday Frank Mario Sainz, 46, of Norwalk was pronounced dead shortly after he was found lying in a pool of blood.
An autopsy performed indicated Sainz died from multiple gunshot wounds and the cause of death has been ruled a homicide, the office said.
There has been no suspect information or possible motive mentioned at this point of the investigation.
At this time, homicide officials believe the victim was seated at the bus bench, perhaps waiting for the next bus, when he was shot.
The victim was found by a Metro bus driver, laying in a pool of blood, about 6:10 p.m. The driver then called authorities.
