A middle-of-the-night shooting in Oceanside left one man dead and police are still searching for the suspect.

Oceanside police were called to the 800 block of Langford Street at about 2 a.m., where there were multiple reports of gunshots in the area, Officer Ryan Keim said.

The victim was described as an Oceanside man in his 20s, and was found by officers collapsed on the porch of an upstairs apartment. He had made it to the porch on his own after being shot nearby and was given first aid by the officers, Keim said.
