Deputies were dispatched about 4:20 p.m. to the 800 block of South Mayo Avenue, near Alondra Boulevard, according to Deputy Trina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The victim, whose name was not released, suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his lower torso while sitting in the driver’s seat of his parked vehicle, according to the sheriff’s department. He died at a hospital.
“The shooting appears to be gang related,” said Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez.
