Man Killed in Shooting in Norco

The St. Charles Sheriff's Office says a man has been killed in a shooting at an apartment in Norco.

A news release from the department says 21-year-old Jay Bertucci died from a gunshot to the chest. Detectives say Bertucci was home with two other people when he answered a knock at the door.

A man at the door allegedly pointed a gun at Bertucci and shot him in the chest when Bertucci grabbed the gun.

Authorities are looking for three suspects who fled the scene on foot.
