A 21-year-old man was gunned down Monday evening, the fourth black youth in three days to be shot and killed on the streets of South Los Angeles.
The victim, whose name is not known as of now, was standing 54th Street and 9th Avenue in the Hyde Park neighborhood when two black male suspects exited their vehicle, One suspect grabbed the victim, and then the other shot him once in the head. The two then fled in an unknown location.
The victim was transported to California Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Hyde Park is known as the stronghold of the Rollin' 60s, but it was not immediately known if they were involved in this homicide. But, the location of the shooting, on the northeast sector of Hyde Park, is near a Van Ness Gangster stronghold.
This case is not related to the previous three killings over the weekend which occurred on the eastside of the southside. On Saturday night, 20-year-old Shujaa Silver aka Badass from Swans and 16-year-old Cy' Jai Bell were shot and killed at 81st and Avalon.
The next day, in what is thought to be a payback, a 17-year-old male was shot to death at 83rd and Main Street, turf of Main Street Crips.
