Gang Shooting Leaves One Dead At Crenshaw and Vernon

Minutes before midnight Friday, a car with six black male suspects pulled up to another vehicle at Crenshaw Boulevard and Vernon Avenue. Two shooters exited and fired multiple rounds at a man sitting in what is thought to be his own car.   

The victim, only identified as a male black, was struck several times and pronounced dead at the scene. Before the shots, one of the suspects yelled out the name of a street gang.
