The killing of a Los Angeles man found dead of a gunshot wound to the chest in Glassell Park may have been gang-related, police said Monday.

The body of Ilario Perez, 43, was discovered about 7:15 a.m. Sunday in the 3400 block of Drew Street, about a block away from Forest Lawn Memorial Park-Glendale, said Los Angeles police Officer Ed Ortiz of the Northeast Station.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detectives Carrillo or Lim at (213) 847-4261. During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).

Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to and click on Web tips. When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
