Irvine shooting leaves one man dead, suspects on the loose

A person was tragically shot and killed in a peaceful Irvine neighborhood on Thursday, leaving a group of suspects still on the loose. The incident occurred near Athel Avenue and Sego Street around 12:37 p.m., prompting a swift response from the Irvine police. Witnesses reported hearing a man’s desperate cries for help and called first responders to the scene.

Upon arrival, Irvine police found Nicholas Alistair Neaimi-Pour, a 19-year-old resident of Costa Mesa, lying on the ground. He suffered from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso. The Orange County Fire Department quickly arrived at the scene and transported Neaimi-Pour to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The suspects, however, managed to escape before the officers could apprehend them. Authorities are currently lacking any specific information about the suspects, but they are believed to have fled in a black Mercedes sedan and a white Honda, potentially a Civic or an Accord.

The Irvine Police Department has expressed their determination to solve this case, stating that it appears the victim was deliberately targeted. The investigation will continue until they disocver what may have lead to the shooting and who was involved. Neaimi-Pour’s residence in South County raises questions about why he was in this particular area. Law enforcement officials are now combing the neighborhood for any surveillance footage or evidence that could lead to the identification of the suspects. They urge anyone with information relevant to the case to contact the Irvine Police Department.

The Irvine Police Department is asking for residents to remain alert, reporting any suspicious activity that they come across.
