A 37-year-old man killed in a gang-related shooting in San Fernando that also left a woman and another man wounded was identified Saturday by the coroner’s office.

His name was German Servin, whose city of residence was not available, a coroner’s investigator said.

The shooting happened about 1 p.m. in the 400 block of Harps Avenue, according to Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which was assisting the San Fernando Police Department in the shooting investigation and suspect search.

When officers arrived at the scene, they contacted the female victim in front of the residence. She was suffering from a gunshot wound to her lower abdomen, Navarro-Suarez said.

She directed the officers to the rear yard of the residence where the two male victims were also found with gunshot wounds.

One of them, later identified as Servin, died at the scene.

Almost simultaneously, reports were received of a man with a gun seen jumping residential fences in the area, the deputy said.

A perimeter was established and an exhaustive search with the assistance of multiple agencies for the possible suspect concluded shortly before 9 p.m. Friday, after the shooter was not found, Navarro-Suarez said.

The other male victim was transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his upper body and he remained in critical condition, Navarro-Suarez said.

The woman also was transported to a local hospital and was in stable condition.

A description of the shooter was not available and the weapon used in the shooting has not been recovered, Navarro-Suarez said.
