LAKEWOOD (CBSLA.com) — A 19-year-old man was shot and killed in the front yard of his Lakewood home Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened at 1:45 p.m. at the residence in the 3700 block of Arbor Road.

Police said the victim was confronted by two Hispanic men, who shot him and fled in a four-door, older model Toyota Camry.

“(The car) was last seen on Arbor going westbound,” said Lt. Dave Coleman of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Friends identified the victim as Cyrus Alva, who was an Engineering major at Long Beach City College.

“I’m just shocked. It’s crazy,” said Greg Law.

Josh Lemos said he knew Alva as a person who loved to skateboard.

“He liked to skate. Like any teenage kid, he liked to party, he liked to do everything. I came to say ‘bye’ to him, but he’s gone,” he said.
