Police in Tustin are searching for a man who fatally shot another man Thursday inside a storefront gym.

Shortly after 12 p.m., police responded to a boxing and mixed martial arts gym in a strip mall in the 14000 block of Newport Avenue, Tustin Police Lt. Robert Wright said.

Inside, officers found a man with gunshot wounds, Wright said. He was pronounced dead at the scene and his identity was not released.

The gunman fled, but police are unsure whether he fled on foot or in a vehicle. Detectives are reviewing surveillance video from nearby businesses to determine whether the incident was recorded, Wright said.
