Authorities Wednesday released the name of a man who was shot and killed in Commerce.

The attack in the 5100 block of Astor Avenue took place about 8:50 p.m. Tuesday, said sheriff’s Homicide Bureau Lt. Steven Jauch, adding that the man was found lying in front of his house with an upper-chest wound and was pronounced dead at the scene.

He was 25-year-old Ernest Ramos, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter said this morning.

Witnesses told homicide detectives that three men walked up to Ramos as he stood in front of his home, and one of them shot him, said Deputy Mike Barraza. The three then ran southbound from the site and fled in a vehicle that headed south on Astor Avenue.

A motive for the shooting was unknown, and no suspect information was immediately available. Anyone with information on the shooting was urged to call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. All tips can be made anonymously.
