Man Found Dead in Monterey Park Garage

By City News Service

 Sheriff’s detectives in Monterey Park Wednesday arrested a roommate of a man who died after an apparent fight.

Yao Zhomg Shi, 59, was detained when Monterey Park police arrived at a garage in the 500 block of North Florence Avenue about 3:40 a.m. in response to reports of a fight, sheriff’s deputies said.

“When they arrived, they found the 51-year-old victim unresponsive on the floor of the attached garage,” Deputy Guillermina Saldana said.

Four men, all of whom apparently lived at the address with the victim, were taken in for questioning by sheriff’s detectives, and Shi was eventually booked on suspicion of murder and jailed in lieu of $1 million bail, deputies said.

The name of the dead man was not released. Anyone with more information was asked to call detectives at (323) 890-5500.
