“The victim told deputies that while he was standing near the location of 91st Street and Compton Avenue, he was approached by a male Hispanic who produced a firearm,” Rouzan said. “The suspect opened fire, striking the victim in the back and upper torso.”

“The victim ran northbound and then westbound from the location, into a neighboring courtyard, where he eventually collapsed,” Rouzan said.

He was taken to a hospital, “where he eventually died as a result of his injuries,” Rouzan said.
