Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department are looking for two people in connection with the killing of a man whose body was found in MacArthur Park Lake on Wednesday.

The discovery was reported just before 8:30 a.m. at the park on 2230 W. 6th St.

Officers who arrived at the scene said the victim, a white man believed to be around 40 to 45 years old, was taken out of the lake and pronounced dead there.

At around 11:30 a.m., Sky5 flew over the area where a white canopy had been set up over the body.

Using city cameras in the park, detectives got video evidence of two men, both described as white or Hispanic and 30 to 40 years old, pushing the victim, who was still alive, into the lake. LAPD confirmed this to KTLA.

Authorities described one suspect as about 6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing about 170 pounds, and last seen wearing blue jeans, red and orange Nike shoes, a black hat, and a black hoodie with “California” written in white and red.

The other suspect is about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighing about 150 pounds, and was last seen wearing a tan t-shirt, dark jeans, and shoes.

A police spokesperson said investigators don’t think this homicide is related to gangs.
